Waterville Crab Crabapple

15x15' Unknown parentage.

Small rounded tree with single white blossoms is loaded each fall with 1½" deep maroon culinary fruit suitable for jelly and cider. Jack Kertesz discovered it thriving out beyond the Waterville Post Office parking lot. For decades, Jack has been one of Maine’s top fruit explorers. His enthusiasm is infectious and his dedication is inspirational. His notes on the Waterville Crab read, “The young tree receives no care… sets fruit in long clusters (spur type)… most fruit is cosmetically perfect… strong flavor.” Another lost gem discovered in the landscape. Probably a named variety, but for now we’re calling it the Waterville Crab. Z4 or maybe Z3. Maine Grown. (Semi-dwarf: 2½-5' bare-root trees)
