Malus Red Glow: Bareroot Red Glow Crab Apple Trees in Standard Sizes

Red Glow is a bold, small but vigorous crab apple that is much in demand thanks to its high quality fruit, which are great to cook with. The young leaves have a red tint in early Spring that wears off by the time the flowers bloom in mid-April. You'll hardly have time to miss them though, as the clear pink blossom is an eye-catching treat with a colour equal to any rose. We recommend this crab apple as a beautiful specimen tree that is also going to stock your kitchen with useful fruit for cooking.

The size of the fruit (up to 5cms across, which is fairly big for a crab) make for easy picking and preparation. They look wonderful on the tree too, with rich purple-red skin like a newly ripe plum.
It can reach a height of about 4 metres.

Delivery season: Crab apple trees are delivered bareroot during late autumn and winter, approximately November-March inclusive.
Choosing a size: Small trees are cheaper, easier to handle and more forgiving of less than ideal aftercare, so they are best for a big planting project. If instant impact is your priority, or if you are only buying a few plants for use in a place where it is convenient to water them well in their first year, then you may as well use bigger ones. All our bareroot trees are measured by their height in centimetres above the ground (the roots aren't measured).

Features:

  • Height: 4m
  • Soil: Any well drained
  • Use: Specimen, small garden, large container
  • Nice sized purple-red fruit
  • Colour: Pink flowers in mid-April
  • Bareroot delivery only: November-March

Growing Red Glow Crab Apples

Any well drained soil. Full sun is ideal if you plan to harvest the fruit, otherwise partial shade is fine. Tolerant of pollution.

Did You Know?

Introduced in 1970.

Standard trees are measured by their girth in centimetres 1 metre above ground level: their trunk's waist measurement. Unlike sapling trees and hedge plants, standards aren't measured by their height, which will vary quite a bit both between and within species.
So, a 6/8cm standard tree has a trunk with a circumference of 6-8cm and an 8/10 standard has a trunk 8-10cm around. This measurement makes no difference to the tree's final height.
On average, standard trees are 2-3.5 metres tall when they arrive, but we cannot tell you precisely how tall your trees will be before we deliver them.
