Malus Golden Hornet Standard Trees 

Golden Hornet gets its name from the honey yellow crabapples, which stay on the branches well into winter. These are excellent for jelly making (which is golden) or pressing into cider. The flowers open in spring from bright pink buds: most will be pure white, some will keep a pink blush. 

They are one of the best pollinators for apple orchards, along with the likes of John Downie. All crabapples are good pollinators for orchard apple trees, but Golden Hornet is has an especially long flowering period that covers almost all apple pollination groups. To 7 metres.

How Standard Trees are Measured:
All the plants in the ornamental trees section are graded as standards, which means that they are measured by their girth in centimetres 1 metre above ground level (basically, their trunk's waist measurement). They aren't measured by their height, which will vary. So, a 6/8 standard has a trunk with a circumference of 6-8 centimetres and an 8/10 standard has a trunk 8-10 centimetres around. This measurement makes no difference to the tree's final height.
Standard trees are 2 - 3.5 metres tall (on average) when they arrive; they are the most mature trees that you can buy from us. We cannot tell you precisely how tall your trees will be before we deliver them.

Did You Know? 

This tree was bred in the early 20th century by Waterer's Nursery. The records do not survive, but it is thought to be descended from Malus prunifolia rinki or Malus x Zumi Calocarpa.
