Malus pumila Standard 'Red Delicious'

One of the most perfectly named. Plump, bright red fruit with crisp, juicy flesh. Stored properly keeps well into mid-spring.

High yielding, fast growing and very hardy.                                                                Ripens September.           Good for fresh eating.

Note: Semi-dwarf apple trees grow 15' tall.  The Standard trees grow to about 30'.  Requires 700-800 chill hours. 

Pollinators: Red Rome or Honey Crisp

* Deer May Browse because deer like to eat apples too! *
