Apples are one of the world’s most popular fruit and red delicious apple trees seem to be the most popular apple. One rating chart that I saw rates the apple as number 5 most popular fruit in the world. Strawberries were number 1. Number 2 was mango, watermelon was number 3 and bananas were number 4. Apples are the number 2 selling fruit in the United States behind the berries group.
The Red Delicious Apple tree is a deciduous, ornamental tree that produces superior fruit. You can grow one as an accent or shade tree for the front yard, or plant several on a side yard for a private orchard.
The Red Delicious apple is the most widely grown variety in the world. It’s a popular apple with a variety of uses. Red Delicious was the single largest variety produced in Washington State in 2005.
By the 1940s, the Red Delicious had become the country’s most popular apple. The Red Delicious has dominated apple production in the United States. By the 1980s, the Red Delicious made up 75 percent of the crop produced in the State of Washington. The president of the Washington Apple Commission—whose growers produce the majority of apples in the United States—recommended that this harvest, up to two-thirds of the state’s Red Delicious yield be exported.
Growing your own apples can be very satisfying, weather it is one or two trees or a small orchard. Pick your favorite and start planting. You’ll need to pay careful attention when choosing a location for planting new apple trees. For success of growing, you must consider the best interest of the apple trees that you are planting. You must look at covering pollination needs, sun and soil requirements. Be careful of spacing to avoid obstacles and over crowding in the planting area.
