    Perhaps the best crab apple for crab apple jelly. Masses of cup-shaped, white flowers from red buds in late spring, followed by large, red-flushed, orange-yellow fruit, and dark green leaves. This pollution tolerant crab apple is an ideal ornamental tree for a small, urban garden. Also it is one of the best disease resistant crab apples. Grafted onto M111 rootstock, it's conical in shape and will flower (and fruit) best when grown in full sun.

  • Garden care: When planting incorporate lots of well-rotted garden compost in the planting hole and stake firmly. Removed dead, diseased and crossing branches while the tree is dormant.
