Crabapple, Crabs, Wild apple, European apple (Eng.), Blomappel, Wildeappel (Afr.)
Crab apple trees are tall deciduous trees that bloom prolifically during spring, have decorative edible fruit and often have attractive autumn foliage. The trees are often grown as cross-pollinators in commercial orchards. Crabapples make good ornamental trees because of their decorative fruit, pretty flowers and occasional autumn colour.
