The Q&A Archives: Looking for large crabapples

Question: I am trying to find a variety of crabapple tree that produces a large fruit. Can you help?

Answer: I thought it would be easy to find crabapple varieties recommended for their fruit, but it's not! Edible Landscaping (PO Box 77, Afton, VA 22920, 800/5244156, recommends 'Centennial' ornamental apple, which is described as "an abrosia of flavors...not the sour crab apples of front yards past!" Fruits do have a hint of crab apple flavor. It's disease resistant, too.

St. Lawrence Nurseries (325 State Hwy 345, Potsdam, NY 13676, ph# 315-265-6739, carries a wide variety of crabapples, too.
Hope this is what you're looking for!
