‘Golden Hornet’ Crabapple


‘Golden Hornet’ Crabapple

Malus 15' x same. Origins shrouded in mystery but thought to be a chance seedling of M. siebodii with origins in the U.K, possibly dating back to the 1800s.

Pale pink buds open to single white flowers. Plentiful yellow fruits persist into late fall and make great jelly. When not heavy with fruit, the limbs are more upright. Once loaded, the branches may bend and spread.

Great pollinator for mid-late crabs and apples due to its extended bloom time and profuse annual spray of flowers. Royal Horticultural Society award winner in 1961. Everyone needs at least one yellow-fruited crab in their collection. Probably two. Z4. Maine Grown. (Semi-dwarf: 2½-5' bare-root trees)
