The crabapple is a wonderful multi-purpose tree. Lovely in the landscape, most of our varieties provide tasty tart apples that are prized for making jelly. Dolgo and Evereste will enhance cider with their bittersharp qualities.

Commercial orchardists often use crabapple trees for pollinizers because of their compact size and their profuse blossoming. Researchers have found that white-flowered varieties are most attractive to bees. Dolgo is used as a great early season pollinizer. Evereste is an excellent mid-season pollinizer.

We offer 4-6' crab apple trees, except Centennials which are natural dwarfs. What makes an apple a crab is not its personality but its smaller size.
