Crab Apples - They'll make you turn to Jelly! In my first "proper" garden I asked an experienced plant enthusiast to recommend a good small ornamental tree. Her reply was given without hesitation - Malus ioensis plena. Malus is the Latin word for Apple. Whilst this particular Crab Apple is not noted for showy fruit, it more than makes up for it with the double pink blossom which smothers the tree in late spring.

The grey green foliage is most attractive when it emerges and turns to warm shades of yellow in autumn. But wait, it doesn't stop there, the Malus or Crab Apple family offers more than just beautiful blossom. Most have highly ornamental fruit that apears in autumn after the flowers and holds on the tree well into the winter or until picked for delicious Crab Apple Jelly. One of the top fruiting varieties is "Jack Humm" which has large bright crimson fruit flushed with a little yellow and orange. These fruits are seldom touched by birds so if you don't wish to process into Jelly they will add interest to the winter garden.

Picture of Malus Crabapple Jelly King
CLICK TO ENLARGE

Crabapple AKA Malus. A year round delight with fragrant, white, spring blossom followed by fresh green summer foliage. Autumn brings gorgeous little apples in tones of cream and orange with red flushes that hold well on the tree and are perfect for jelly making. PVR. Deciduous.

This tree was bred in NZ and is a vigorous grower and prolific producer of fruit. It pays to harvest the fruit early for Jelly making but make sure you leave some apples on the tree to decorate the autumn-winter garden. According to the breeder the birds leave the fruit alone which is an added bonus.
