Gibson Yellow Delicious Apple Tree

Plant one of our Gibson Yellow Delicious Apple Tree (Malus x ‘Gibson Yellow Delicious’) for lots of large, green to golden-yellow fruit! Plenty for your family with enough left to share with the wildlife around you. (Maybe a neighbor if you like them enough.)

Spring brings clouds of fragrant white blossoms and swarms of bees, and the cold temperatures bring about some great yellow fall color! Gibson apples are round in shape, with a smooth greenish-yellow to golden skin. They keep well, provide tasty snacks, and they are great for cooking, baking, and canning. Not to mention the gifts of applesauce and pies, apple butter and caramel apples you’ll enjoy!

They russet (brown dense skin scarring) less than most golden delicious varieties and produce a large crop in late September through mid-October. So, you will have plenty of apples for the fall and winter holidays! The Gibson Yellow Delicious grows well in a wide range of zones, and these trees are easy to grow and mature quickly.

Planting and Application:

Gibson is a self-pollinator, unlike many apple varieties, but it will produce a significantly larger crop if you pair it with another pollinator. Plant groupings for an extended harvest and a wide variety for all your various needs! You’ll not only create an edible landscaping grove for shade and songbirds, but you’ll enjoy self-sustainability too.

These dual-purpose trees are for all your landscaping needs! Moderately sized and prunable smaller, so any yard, big or small, can accommodate one of these flowering edible ornamental fruit trees!

  • Delicious Juicy Fruit
  • Big Freestone Fruit
  • Fragrant Pink Spring Blooms
  • Self-Fertile
  • Great Canning, Freezing & Fresh Eating

Tips for Care:

Apple trees need full sun to do their best. Provide well-drained soil and plenty of regular water during the growing season and good fertility. For extra protection, they love a thick bed of mulch over the surface for moisture retention and insulation. Prune annually in late winter, removing up to 20% of the previous year’s growth.

  • Full Sun – 6+ Hours a Day
  • Enriched Well-Drained Soil
  • Mulch Well
  • Prune When Dormant
  • Regular Moderate Moisture

The Gibson Yellow Delicious Apple Tree is a great choice for any homeowner. It will give you plenty of fruit to enjoy either fresh or canned for many years.
