The Chestnut Crab Apple Tree is a cross between Malinda apple and Siberian crab apple.
Large cooking and dessert crab apple. Reddish bronze with a crisp, juicy, sweet flesh that has a nutty flavor to it. Excellent right off the tree.
Variety is naturally dwarfing, will max out around 15 feet with a slight weeping effect, a beautiful specimen tree.
Cedar apple rust resistant. Mid-season with large white blossoms and a medium pollen producer. Excellent pollinator for other apples.
Zones: 2/3-7, down to -50 F
3 – 4 foot bare root tree
G30 rootstock. Approximately 10-12 feet at maturity.
We highly recommend protecting your trees with a tree tube
Growing trees in the Northeast has proved challenging. One of our main struggles has been with deer and other tree nibbling predators.
Not only were our orchard trees being nibbled and rubbed, but now the deer/rabbits/porcupines/voles and more were heading towards our nursery stock.
I guess when you set out a buffet, the animals say ‘THANKS!’
We decided to purchase a few hundred TREE PRO Miracle Tree Tubes and were quickly sold on the benefits.
Trees that seemed to be stuck in their growth were now growing. We no longer had to constantly move electric fencing. Even trees in remote areas on the farm were thriving.
Where we had ordered them last year to offer to you, Tree Pro started selling them on Amazon (of course) and they are cheaper and offer FREE Shipping. We still highly recommend them!
