Description

Everything about this crabapple is beautiful. Showcasing purple/red blossoms and leaves, and red fleshed fruit with berry flavor. Great for wildlife as the apples hold onto the tree into the winter. A favorite snack for kids, and cider makers are sure to love it too. A seedling found and named by MORP, growing in the town of Dolores near the Dolores River.

Choose rootstock type depending on availability:

Malus domestica Standard sized seedling rootstock. This is what trees were historically grafted on. These will be large trees that will grow for a century or more due to their cold hardiness and drought tolerance. Plant 25 feet or more apart.

M111 Semi Dwarf rootstock. 3/4 size of standard. A good compromise if you want a slightly smaller tree. Plant 15 feet or more apart.

M7 Semi Dwarf, Smaller than M111. Probably not as long lived, but produces sooner. Longer lived than M26. Plant 12 feet or more apart.

M26 Dwarf, Short lived (a few decades), fast producing, needs staked, not drought tolerant or as cold hardy, plant as close to 1-2 feet apart.
