Yellow Delicious Apple is a semi-dwarf late season deciduous tree that produces large sweet fruit in early fall.  The highly fragrant pink flower clusters bloom in summer attracting butterflies and hummingbirds.  Yellow Delicious apples ripen in September or October, with yellow skin occasionally flushed with pink .  Best fruiting in full sun with deep, slightly acidic, well-drained soil.  Needs other pollinators to produce fruit, and fruits after 2-3 years with a moderate chill requirement.  Can keep for 3-6 months.
