Special varieties of Apple trees for gardens and orchards

Crab apple trees

 

Crab Apples make very decorative garden trees and provide a spectacular display of blossom in the Spring. The colourful crab apple fruits hang on the trees until late in the Autumn. In addition, they are valuable pollinators for many apples, having an extended flowering period.

 

Our selection includes varieties suitable for making crab apple jelly thanks to their high pectin content.
