Brandywine Crabapple

Malus 20x20' M. ioensis ‘Plena’ Klehm’s No. 8 (M. x purpurea ‘Lemoinei’ x M. ‘Klehm’s Improved’)

Incredibly beautiful fragrant flowers followed by unbelievably bitter fruit. Deep red buds open to small deep pink double rose-like blossoms. Put an arrangement of these flowers in a vase, and people will swear they are roses. One of the most fragrant crabs.

Some growers will hate the unattractive 1-2" yellow fruit that drops in the fall and makes a mess. Cidermakers will love it. Very high in tannin. In Cider Digest a few years ago, one grower wrote, “You ought to try planting a crab called ‘Brandywine’. WOW!!! what a real mouth-killer as far as tannin goes… Couldn’t tell you the acidity because my tongue had gone dead.”

Loosely rounded tree. Blooms late. Z4. Maine Grown. (Semi-dwarf: 3-6' bare-root trees)
