Commonly Asked Questions

When do Ruby Crabapples flower?

Crabapple flowers appear in late Spring. Clusters of double ruby pink-hued flowers create a showstopping specimen tree.

 

Is the fruit from a Crabapple edible?

Crabapple fruit is edible, although it is more sour than a regular apple. We do not recommend eating the core or the seeds of the fruit.

 

When should I prune my Crabapple?

An ideal time for pruning your crabapple would be late winter or early spring, before the new spring buds appear. This will allow for optimal fresh new spring growth.
