Crab Apples
Fruits good for jelly

Crab Apples [Malus] are a great addition to any garden and especially those that grow fruit trees. The blossoms of most varieties will greatly aid pollination of apple trees and apart from the obvious decorative properties, the fruits make great jellies for use served with roasted meats or served cold, spread on toast!

These trees tend to be quite accommodating and seldom grow too large. The heights mentioned are an estimate at 10 years. The smaller kinds all grow well in 20" containers and all are of easy cultivation.

Note:  most varieties from this seaction are currently booked for Auutmn delivery.
