Crab-ap­ple

Sunday Tasmanian - Tassie Living - - GARDENING -

Crab-ap­ple trees are grown for both fruit and flow­ers, al­though some with the most flam­boy­ant, colour­ful spring blos­soms tend to pro­duce small, in­signif­i­cant fruit. Worth search­ing for is “Jack Humm” with white blos­soms in spring which from mid-autumn to win­ter pro­duces enor­mous num­bers of bright orange and scar­let ap­ples about the size of pul­let’s eggs. Best planted in win­ter.
