Apple Trees & Crabapple Trees
Crabapple trees also make a great addition to any yard. Crabapple trees bear very heavy crops of sweet-tart apples that can be made into great cider, deliciuos jelly or baked goods. Crabapple trees are covered in profuse snow white blossoms in Spring and then bright red fruit in early Fall. Crabapple trees are very hardy and a great choice for home gardeners. Crabapple trees are self-fertile and will pollinate other apple trees.
Trees are 4-5', 1/2 caliper
