Apple Trees - Yellow DeliciousMalus domestica
USDA Hardiness Zones: 5-8
Yellow Delicious apples are a great all-purpose apple with a delicious flavor. The apples ripen in September and October and are yellow when ripe. The large, golden fruit of the yellow delicious apple tree ripens late, developing a fine, sweet flavor. They can be eaten fresh, used for cooking, or stored for a few months. While they are best known as fresh-eating apples, yellow delicious also work well for pies, applesauce, and preserves. They also store well, keeping 3–6 months if refrigerated. For planting, apples trees prefer full sun and slightly acidic soil. At maturity they can reach a height of 15-20 feet and a width of 15-18 feet.
USDA ZONES: Zone 5, Zone 6, Zone 7, Zone 8

How to Plant
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.
