Super Chief® Red Delicious
Our best early-coloring super-red strain of Delicious. Originated as a complete tree sport of the Campbell strain in the orchards of Ray Sandidge in Entiat, Washington. This strain starts out as a stripe and fills in to a solid red ten days ahead of harvest. Tree is a super-spur and stays compact even on semi-dwarf roots. It is a consistent, annual bearer even when not thinned aggressively. We feel this variety gives eastern growers a distinct early coloring and market advantage.

Rootstocks are plants with pre-established root systems onto which a cutting or a bud from another plant is grafted, allowing for control of vigor and/or disease-resistant abilities.
Many fruit tree varieties are not self-fertile. In order to have successful pollination, it may be necessary to have two different varieties of tree.View the Apple Pollination Chart
