Description Germination Extended Information
 
Our native crabapple that's gaining popularity as a disease and drought resistant rootstock for domestic apples with great success. .  Sweet almond scented pale amber/ivory flowers festoon the fruiting spurs in early May.  Small oval bronzy coloured fruits are much enjoyed by the birds after a frost (if not sooner).  Used for pectin, jelly. A great wildlife tree.  Rugged bark on older specimens.  Leaves often have pointed lobes midway along the edge...distinguishing it from domestic apple saplings.  First Nations harvested these green, placed them in bent cedar boxes filled with water and stored them in a cool place.  Over the winter the flavour changed from tart to sweet with a scent of cotton candy. No disease problems.
