|The dwarf crabapple in my front yard bore more fruit than I've ever seen! (of course I've only been living here 3 years)|
I'd put this photo in the plant database if I knew exactly which variety it is, but the previous owner of the house didn't leave me that info.

Looking at that website, I'd say either Donald Wyman or Red Jewel, because of the size. My tree is approximately 15x15, spreading not upright.

|What are you going to do with all those crab apples? I have only eaten them once at someone's house. Not too familiar with how to eat/fix them.|

|They're teeny. I always just leave them for the squirrels & cardinals.|
The winter before last, we got deep snow that stayed on the ground for weeks... the squirrels made a path in it between the tree and the nearest telephone pole.
