This flowering Crabapple gets small apples...I know this because this is the tree where I park every Thursday when I pick up my online grocery order. The birds eat the fruit. They are not large enough to do anything with.
My parents yard.
I commented to my Dad that his Crabapple trees were beautiful. He replied "Those are worthless they don't get any fruit." I told him perhaps they were just to look at...he muttered something under his breath...
Dad wants productive trees...most people stay away from the Crabapples with fruit...they are messy and attract bees. In town they litter the sidewalks and get stuck to your shoes....there are some boulevard trees that have nice sized fruit if someone were inclined to make jelly.
