Although unrelated to other Delicious varieties, Mollies Delicious tastes as good and is ready to eat a whole month earlier! Each tree grows up to 15' tall and bears very large, conical fruit with yellow flesh and a red blushing skin. The crisp, firm flesh has a fine texture and an unforgettable sweet-tart taste. A crisp and tasty choice for eating fresh, it is also ideal for cooking, canning and storing. Best pollinators: Honeycrisp, Golden Delicious or Braeburn. Ripens mid-late August.

Is it self pollinated tree?
Kate W on Jun 17, 2017
BEST ANSWER: This tree does require a pollinator.
We planted 2 Mollies Delicious & they are now bearing fruit. When is the best time to harvest the apples? I am in zip 76247, & the trees have a Western & Southwestern exposure.
K M on Jun 5, 2019
BEST ANSWER: You must also have a neighbor with a different kind of apple tree that's pollinating your Mollie's Delicioius, as they are not self-fertile. If you want a lot more apples, plant a Honeycrisp, Golden Delicious or Braeburn nearby. As for ripening, that will depend upon the weather conditions rather than a calendar. In late August/early September, cut one open. If the seeds are dark brown, the apples are ready to pick. Also, if the fruit is overly tart, it's not ready to harvest yet.
