Answer: Golden delicious apples are self-pollinating and produce large, conical, golden fruit with aromatic white flesh. They are generally healthy trees and prolific producers, if they're grown in the right climate. They perform best in zones 5-9. You're in zone 4, which accounts for the lack of blossoms on your trees. On an off-year the trees may produce, but it isn't likely you'll get bumper crops from your trees. Before you have too much time and effort invested in them, you might want to consider replacing them with cultivars that thrive in your gardening region. Try 'Lodi', 'MacIntosh' or 'Wealthy', instead of 'Golden Delicious'.
