Up for sale ONE grafted apple tree 10-18 inches tall. Variety name is - "Red Delicious"
Red Delicious apple trees are self-pollinating, but will have a greater yield with more than one tree, so it's best to plant a few. Plant with pollinator apple trees that bloom in the early spring like they do, such as McIntosh and most crab apples. The Red Delicious apple variety was discovered in 1875 as a chance seedling growing on Jesse Hiatt’s farm in Peru, Iowa. Thinking it was a nuisance, Hiatt tried to chop down the seedling, but the tree grew back repeatedly. On the third time, Hiatt allowed it to grow and produce apples.
