Malus Hupehensis

Malus hupehensis is a Chinese crabapple tree, known as the Hubei / Hupei Crab or the Tea Crabapple. This small, goblet shaped tree is covered with white blossom in spring, which matures into bright red fruit that look like cherries. These hang onto the branches well into winter. Older trees will start to spread out and develop a wide, rounded canopy, but you can always prune them back if they get too big. Malus hupehensis is sterile and will not pollinate other apple trees. If you are looking for a pollinator for an apple orchard then choose either John Downie and Golden Hornet. However its fruit makes the most delightful pink crabapple jelly. In perfect conditions Malus hupehensis can reach a height of about 9 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.

Malus hupehensis Facts
This tree is native to China and Japan. The prolific botanical explorer Ernest Wilson first came across it in China's Hupeh province and introduced it to Britain in 1900. It has won an RHS Award of Garden Merit and the Award of Merit for its cut flowers.
