    Fabulous shiny fruit.

    One of my favourites. They look like Christmas baubles. So beautiful. I’m designing a garden where the customer is having an avenue of crab apples. Just imagine! x

    • Cathy says:

      A crab apple avenue sounds wonderful – you must be thrilled to be designing a garden that includes that brief πŸ™‚ It took me ages to decide which variety to choose – it was to replace the magnolia which we cut down last year, and I also spent a little more to get a slightly bigger tree. It is still small though, no more than 6 feet or so, and the side branches are still short, but it has been well covered in crab apples

    Such glowing colour. Fingers crossed that the birds resist them for some time to come.

    • Cathy says:

      Yes, I chose this variety in the end because the fruits were not a solid colour. They are certainly more attractive than Golden Hornet whose apples are now rotting on the tree, as they do 😦

    Wonderful !

  5. They almost look like marzipan fruits to me. Lovely.

  6. A glowing example! I love crab apples. Do you use them?

    • Cathy says:

      I am so glad I chose this variety, Allison. I am so yearning to use them but it is still a young tree and there are perhaps not enough to make it worthwhile picking any without stripping it – hmm, perhaps I shall weigh one and estimate how many I would need for a single jar of jelly… πŸ˜‰

    Lovely! It must be wonderful to stand under a treeful eventually.

  8. A beautiful picture of these stunning crab apples, I love the colour and blossom too, we have lots still on ours that we planted last autumn, same variety as yours too. Have you kept it as a tree or trained it against a wall?
