Malus tschonoskii is often grown for its foliage rather than for its flowers or fruits. However, it still displays a nice white array of flowers in April-May, which are preceded by attractive pink flowers buds and then followed by 2-3cm wide, slightly flattened, pale red and yellow, dotted fruits. They are a bit gritty, but perfectly edible raw or cooked. It attracts a lot of wildlife. The Chonosuki Crab has a distinctive columnar habit with relatively large leaves, which unlike a crabapple, turns to a vivid orange and fiery red from mid-October and the fruits may last on the tree longer than the leaves.
We have excellent quality, 20-30cm tall plants on offer.
