Applecrab tree sales will begin in late September.
An Applecrab is a hybrid between an apple and crabapple. This cross is typically well suited for colder climates and makes a much hardier fruit tree—the fruit averages about 2″ inches in diameter. As a result, when combining the two varieties, you get a larger fruit than a crabapple yet produces as heavily as crabapple. Most people would look at an apple crab and think it’s an apple, and there is truth in that thought. The difference is that apple crab can produce a much larger fruit crop than a regular apple tree.
Our trees are unique, specially selected for their particular characteristics. Our Applecrabs are very palatable and sweet-tasting, comparable to or better in taste than most modern apples today. Add in good disease resistance, and you will have trees beneficial for wildlife, especially Whitetail deer. Therefore, when the best of both worlds come together, you get a larger fruit than a crabapple yet produces as heavily as a crabapple. You get a tree that’s exceptional when planting trees for wildlife.
These trees come from scion wood taken from the original tree, essentially giving you a clone of the original tree. The end goal is to provide fruit trees that are dependable food sources and attract wildlife, especially the Whitetail deer.
We all want traits that meet our individual needs. The Applecrab provides such needs as consistent and abundant fruit crops, sweet palatable fruit, various drop times, and lengths. Add in enough built-in disease resistance, and you get a tree that requires less maintenance to be very productive.
Applecrab trees will add the diversity to meet your hunting or management needs.
