Malus domestica ‘Golden Delicious’ (Double cordon apple)
Well known dessert apple. Please contact us for stock availability and sizes.
Hardiness level Green
Well known dessert apple. It crops well and the fruit, which starts green and ripens to golden yellow can be stored from November till February.
Sun to partial shade, in most fertile well drained soils. Prune to shape 3 or 4 times over the year, so non fruiting shoots after flowering in the spring, shorten long growths in August and tidy to shape in the winter.
As with all woody plants, plant high, exposing as much of the taper at the base of the trunk as possible. Allowing soil to accumulate round the base of a tree can be fatal. Keep very well watered when first planted.
