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 normally averages about 2’’ inches in diameter. As a result, when combining the two varieties you get a fruit that is larger than a crabapple yet produces as heavily as crabapple. Most people would look at an applecrab and think it’s an apple, and there is truth in that thought. The difference is the applecrab has the ability to produce a much larger crop of fruit than a regular apple tree.
Our trees are unique, specially selected for their special 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 that are beneficial for wildlife, especially Whitetail deer. Therefore, when the best of both worlds come together you get a fruit that is larger 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 for attracting wildlife, especially the Whitetail deer.
We all want traits that meet our own individual needs. The Applecrab provides such needs as consistent and abundant fruit crops, very sweet palatable fruit, varied 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 that will meet your hunting or management needs.
