Quick Overview

The Crab Apple Tree or the “Tree of Love” as it was known to the Ancient Celts, is the UK's only native apple tree and is one of our most popular saplings. It makes the ultimate gift to send for weddings, anniversaries and birthdays as it’s the ultimate enduring token of love.

In late spring the tree will produce an abundance of sweet-scented pink and white blossom that is particularly loved by bees. The blossom will develop into a decorative autumn crop of apples and whilst the fruit is sour and tart when raw, it’s perfect for making traditional crab apple jelly, jam and even wine and cider.

The Crab Apple is the perfect gift for friends and family with small to medium sized gardens as it’s one of the smaller native varieties. The recipient can nurture and care for the sapling to watch it grow into a strong beautiful tree that will last for many years to come.
