Kerr Crabapple Apple


Kerr Crabapple Apple

Malus spp. Late Summer. Morden 352 (Dolgo x Haralson) Morden, Manitoba, Canada, 1938.

Introduced by the famous Canadian plant breeder WL Kerr. Firm deep red ovate 2" fruits are a tasty snack fresh off the tree, better after storage. They keep well. Be sure to thin fruitlets so the remaining apples size up. We love culinary crabs, and this one is especially good for brandying. Pack fruit into a mason jar with a scoop of sugar and cover with your favorite vodka. Let stand a year or two; flip it upside-down now and then.

Extremely productive and precocious, somewhat spreading vigorous medium-sized tree. Heavy annual long-lasting bloom of single white flowers makes this a great pollinator for other varieties. Early to midseason blooms. Exceedingly hardy. Z3 or maybe even Z2. Maine Grown. (Semi-dwarf: 2½–5' bare-root trees)
