Varieties of Crabapple Trees - Malus Species

Crabapples are beautiful small trees with excellent displays of flowers in late spring, ornamental fruit that can cooked and eaten and good autumn colour. Wild Crabapple saplings also make sturdy hedge plants.
The juice of any crabapple can be added in small quantities to a cider brew to enhance the flavour.
Crabapples are perfectly edible, they just need to be cooked and sweetened first. Crabapple jelly, often mixed with other wild fruit like Rowan berries, is a good way to turn a glut of fruit into a preserve that will last a long time. The most productive crabapple for use in cooking & making jelly is John Downie.
Crabapples are great pollinators of apple tree orchards. We especially recommend John Downie and Golden Hornet as pollinators because they have a long flowering season and produce useful fruit for cooking.
Crabapples generally grow to 7-12 metres tall and we also stock a Weeping Crabapple that only reaches 4 metres.
