Quick Overview

The Crab Apple Tree or the 'Tree of Love' as it was known to the Ancient Celts.

One of our most popular trees, the Crab Apple is the Original British Apple Tree. Whilst the fruit is rather sour when raw is perfect for making traditional jam and jelly.

The tree blooms beautiful white flowers in late Spring and the fruit will be ready for picking in Autumn.

  • The Crab Apple tree is native throughout the British Isles, they can grow to a maximum of 15ft (4.5m) if not pruned.
  • The Crab Apple tree is a small spreading tree often with a dense crown and large twisted branches.
  • Delicate white flowers provide an autumn crop of Crab Apples and although the fruit is bitter it can be made into jelly, jam and wine.
  • The Crab Apple tree can provide an excellent food source for birds.
  • Somewhat surprisingly Crab Apple trees can take cutting back very well and is an interesting component that can be included in traditional hedgerows.
  • Tree supplied is 20-60cm tall (depending on season).
