Probably the best ornamental crabapple (and the best for jelly!). Masses of white flowers in late spring followed by good crops of comparatively large bright orange-red fruits.

Hardy and easily grown small trees cultivated for the beauty of their spring blossom during April and May and equally colourful displays of crabapples later in the year, these are often retained after the leaves have fallen in autumn and are very popular with birds. Although the fruits are too bitter to eat they may be turned into a delicious crabapple jelly. Any reasonable soil that does not become waterlogged.

These hardy trees produce stunning fragrant blossoms in spring and equally attractive fruits which are much loved by birds. Ideal as specimens and will tolerate most soils making them easy to grow. Golden Hornet and John Downie also make excellent pollinators for fruiting apples.One of the best Crabapples with white flowers and comparatively large bright orange-red fruits. This variety is an excellent pollinator for fruiting apples and as other Crabapples is easy to grow.
