Golden Delicious Dwarfing

Allowed to ripen on the tree, the Golden Delicious develops into a large yellow coloured apple bursting with crunch, juice and sweetness. Often a splash of russet near the stem, tiny specks over the skin and an orange blush on the sunny side. Stores well. Discovered in USA at the end of the 1800's. An entirely better experience when left to ripen on the tree compared to that you may buy in the supermarket (green and bland).

Pollination Guide

  • Pollination is far simpler than most people think. Generally, unless self fertile simply get 2 or more different varieties in the same group (eg pears) to ensure adequate pollination. A more comprehensive explanation can be found in our Pollination Guide
