Adorable wee fresh-eating russeted crab with a long stem and a few faint pinkish-orange stripes. Rough skin is almost kiwi-like. A large Pipsqueak might approach 2" in diameter, but the diminutive fruit packs a punch. Surprisingly juicy, full of unusual flavor—tropical like a piña colada. We eat them raw or baked whole rolled in cinnamon and sugar. Rivals dessert crab Trailman, a Fedco fave, as the perfect snack apple. Was a big hit with customers when served for dessert at The Lost Kitchen in Freedom, ME. Ripens around October 1 in central Maine. Blooms midseason. Z4. Maine Grown. (Semi-dwarf: 2½-5' bare-root trees)
