Malus Domestica 'Golden Delicious’ is a heavily-producing, deciduous apple tree, with oval, dark green leaves and lovely, fragrant, white flowers blooming in April. Attractive to bees, butterflies, and hummingbirds. Flowers are followed by heavy and regular crops of greenish-yellow to golden-yellow, delicious, sweet, crispy, juicy, and aromatic apples. Malus Domestica 'Golden Delicious’ grows best in moderately fertile, neutral, deep, loamy, moist, well-drained soils. It thrives in full sun, but can adapt to partial shade. It requires cold winters for good fruit production, but it has to be sheltered from harsh winter winds. It is self-fertile but needs a pollinator of anther variety blooming at the same time for better crops. Regular pruning and fruit thinning are required to improve fruit size and quality. 'Golden Delicious' Apple is a wonderful, ornamental tree, a nice addition to any garden. It is primarily grown for its delicious fruit, perfect for eating fresh and great for cooking. One of the best apple varieties.

M26 is a semi-dwarfing rootstock (smaller than MM106) used for apple trees, particularly in orchards and home gardens. It produces trees 10-12 feet in height, making them easier to manage and harvest. M26 ensures early fruit production, good anchorage, and medium vigor. However, it requires staking during early years and is moderately susceptible to fire blight.

About Us

During this time, we have developed a large stock of trees, mature evergreen shrubs, conifers, Japanese maples, cedars and olives. What sets us apart from a generic garden center is solid unwavering focus on trees and some bigger shrubs. You will find thousands of trees, hundreds of varieties and lots of experts who are working on the nursery and more than willing to help you to choose a plant for you.

What you will not find is hot tubs, garden furniture and plastic garden gnomes. In a nutshell, trees is what we know and trees is what we do, and only trees (and some shrubs to go with the trees).
