The Golden Delicious Apple is a well known, versatile garden variety. The apple is best used for cooking or deserts. It produces fruit which yellows with age, with a very sweet honey taste. Golden Delicious are heavy, regular crops and store well once harvested. Their best season of use is November to February.

 

Growing your own fruit is educational, therapeutic, fun and also environmentally friendly - You won’t have to carry bags from the supermarket and there is no cost on mileage. They look great on the garden patio and also on balconies. A lovely plant which will make a great addition to the home.

 

These Dwarf Fruit trees are ideal for growing in pots or small gardens. They produce fruit at a much younger age than larger varieties, with most fruiting at 2-3 years. Larger varieties take around 5 years to start fruiting. A mature tree can reach 5-6ft and produce a fruit yield of 15-25lb. For this tree variety to reach maximum size, it takes around 10-15 years and needs to be given the space to grow. However to keep trees to a manageable size they can be kept potted or pruned to the desired height. They reach their full cropping capacity at 4-5 years old. This rootstock variety is M27, Extremely Dwarfing.

 

Pot size: 18cm Height: 90cm approximate.

Tropical Fruit Trees - Golden Apple - Part 1 05:23

This is the first video in the series for my golden apple tree. It is also known as the Jamaican June Plum tree and the Tahitian Apple tree. They usually grow in a tropical equatorial environment and produce an edible fruit with a fibrous pit. This tree was transplanted to the ground from a 15 gallon pot about 4 days before this video. Follow along with the progress and development of the tree. As you can see, it starts to produce fruit even from a small size. This tree is no more than 2 feet tall, and if I didn't pick off most of the fruit buds, it would literally have probably over 100 fruits on it now. Of course, picking off the fruit allows the tree to concentrate more on growing.
