Product details

This tree has pretty white flowers that emerge in spring giving a profuse display of classic Malus flower. The fruits are orange-red, large and connical in shape.

They have a good flavour to them and as such are useful in making preserves and Crab Apple jelly, In the autumn time the foliage turns classically lemony yellow and brown.

This useful Crab Apple is extremely popular, it won the updated Award of Garden Merit from the Royal Horticultural Society in 2002.

At maturity Malus John Downie forms a small tree with an irregular, oval crown.

Like all crab apples, it thrives on most soils and is especially useful for planting on clay soils.

f you live in an area prone to rabbits or deer then we recommend rabbit guards for these trees.

Mature height: 3-7m
