The apples, a soft yellow with a pink blush, ripen in late June, and after picked, they can be kept for two weeks if refrigerated. The Dorsett Gold is perfect for Gulf Coast planting. It requires 250 chill hours and needs a pollinator. The Dorsett Gold Apple trees prefer full sun and slightly acidic soil. At maturity, the Dorsett Gold apple can reach a height and width of 10-20 feet. The Dorsett Gold can be pollinated by the Anna or the Ein Shemer apple.

How to Plant
STEP 1) First, decide on a planting location. Consider carefully what kind of sun, soil, and growing-space your tree or shrub will need.
STEP 2) Once you've located the perfect spot, the hole you are digging must be at least double the width and as deep as the root system you are planting.
STEP 3) Remove the plant from the pot and place the root ball in the hole. The top of the root system should be level with the ground. Before placing the tree or shrub in the hole, use your hands to gently break up the root system.
STEP 4) Once the plant is in place, backfill the hole with native soil and any leftover potting material.
STEP 5) Pack down the soil to eliminate any air pockets.
STEP 6) When finished, water thoroughly.
Care Guide

Water apple trees regularly, making sure to keep the soil moist without drowning the tree. Prune in the winter while the tree is growing and in the summer once the tree has reached its desired height.

Arrived in good condition

Arrived in good condition, will need a couple of years to tell you how the apples are, but we followed the directions when we planted and they seem to be doing very well.

Impressed with delivery quality

The trees (Anna and this Dorsett) were packaged excellently. each root ball was sealed (zip tied) in a heavy plastic bag, and very moist (not soaking) when delivered. The size of the whip was impressive (roughly 5/8" diameter) and had healthy looking green leaves and some new green growth. I am really looking forward to getting apples off this tree in the years to come! The Dorsett gold had a sucker at the base and i assume its the scion trying to sprout, so i pinched it off when i planted it.

Wrong tree?

I bought an Anna apple tree and a Dorsett Golden. The leaves are coming out on both and the one marked Dorsett Golden are not apple type leaves. I think it may be a tulip tree.

Our Anna and Dorsett Apple Trees

We were very pleased with the prompt delivery of our trees. They were very well packed and in great shape. We purchased the 1-2 ft. size trees, but they were actually between 3-4 ft. Both had some green leaves on them, and they are already budding out some more leaves! Thankfully, we have had much rain during the 9 days we've had them planted, so our initial watering of them has been mostly taken care of! We were also very pleased with the communications with Plant Me Green. Good company!

Happy deleivery

The tree arrived with two other varieties that I ordered and is one recommended for my USDA Zone. The packaging was excellent and the tree was in great shape. It was larger than I expected with several green leaves which was a pleasant surprise. Even though this is not the best time of year to plant trees in my neighborhood, I got it into the ground within 24 hours of receipt. I will surely have to baby it along during the coming hot summer weather, but it arrived in such good shape that I am really optimistic about its chances to thrive. I am looking forward several years from now to harvest some apples. I can recommend this vendor and will look to them for my future purchases.
