Crab Apple 'Butterball' produces immensely pretty, golden-yellow fruits completely cover its arched branches in the summer and autumn months, each one ripening in the sun with a lovely hot-pink flush. On top of this you get the gorgeous blossom-packed displays in Spring, which act as fantastic cross-pollinators for normal Apple tree crops too. The bees will simply love your trees in full flower!
They will look simply magical in your garden, each year for many years to come! Pick your crab apples to make scrumptious home-made jellies or even tempting crab apple schnapps! Your deciduous tree will go into dormancy over winter, only to burst into life again each spring, with rich-green foliage and small pink flower buds in April. The buds will open up to reveal beautiful, pink-flushed, white blossom that will not only look great, but fill your garden with fragrance too! This great garden performer will provide you with year-round interest for decades, and are ideal fo smaller gardens as speciment trees in lawns or in larger border areas.
