Growing your own apples in your garden is very rewarding and they taste so much more delicious than when bought in the store! The well known Apple Golden Delicious has a greenish yellow skin which ripens to a golden yellow with occasional russet patches. The flesh is firm and cream coloured and has a crisp, juicy, honey sweet and refreshing taste when first picked. Unfortunately most retail shops supply fruit which is picked early and stored, preventing the full and lush flavour from developing fully.
Golden Delicious is one of the most widely grown apples throughout the world. It comes originally from the USA in the 19th century and is a popular choice for UK gardeners. The tree requires a sunny position and is not well suited to cooler climates. Plant with a pollination partner from the same flowering group. The ‘Royal Gala’ is a perfect partner.
Your Malus domestica 'Golden Delicious' will offer up a crop of fruit ready for harvesting in mid October. These apples can be eaten straight off the tree. Because they keep their shape when cooked, they make delicious baked apples spiced with cinnamon and drenched in honey. If you are ambitious, bake a delectable Apple Crisp Pie and serve with whipped cream.
We offer the Malus domestica 'Golden Delicious' as a rootstock MM106, semi-dwarfing, which is tolerant of a range of soils including grassed orchards and poor soils. This is the most widely used rootstock. Plant with a spacing of 4.5m between the rows for best results. When left unpruned it will reach heights of 4-5m in a 10 year period. Plant the wonderful Golden Delicious tree as the first step to creating your own private orchard!
