Chestnut Crab Apple Tree on Standard sized root stock


This isn’t your typically crab apple…it’s sweet and nutty and very addicting. We love them with cheese and in salads. They might be small but they are mighty in flavor. Its reddish bronzed skin is slightly russeted, providing a nice snappy texture. A delightful all-purpose apple that is also good for pickling and canning whole. Ripens in mid-late September. Stores for a month or two. Farmer Favorite.

Introduced from MN in 1946, it is also an excellent landscaping tree as it is very beautiful in bloom. We find ourselves visiting our Chestnut crab tree often while in bloom. Crab apples are amazing pollinators and every orchard should have a few. Fairly scab resistant. 2018 was a very “buggy” year here at the orchard, but this crab apple stood up very well to all the pests.
