Answer: If your crabapples flower, then fruit will probably follow. Crabapples are usually the size of a small to large marble; they can be a nuisance but they make the BEST jelly, and they are food for wildlife. Hopefully these attributes, plus the beautiful show of flowers in the spring, will win you their favor. They are nice trees in that they (unlike many apple cultivars) are relatively pest free and stay a nice size for a yard tree.
Rochester is in USDA zone 6.
