Crab Apples

crab apple tree (Malus 'Prairie fire')
The crab apple tree Malus 'Prairie fire' produced an abundance of crab apples this year. The small red apples will stay on the tree all winter long. The birds do not seem to eat the apples until later in winter when not much else is available. A good reason to plant this tree. This particular variety is also resistant to many of the diseases that can plague crab apple trees.
