Product details

Malus Rudolph (also known as Crab Apple Rudolph) was developed in the 1950s and is one of Barcham's favourite 3 Malus: we have one red, one white and one upright crab we favour; this is the red one!

This super tree has a glorious display of rose-pink flowers which appear in late spring. The foliage emerges after the flowers and is initially copper-red in colour; over the summer period, Malus Rudolph turns to a bronze-green, the only remnants of the red being the bright venation of the leaves.

In the autumn time, the elongated red fruits emerge as the foliage turns a clear yellow.

The Crab Apple Rudolph tree is fairly columnar as a young tree however the crown becomes rounder as it matures.

Unlike some Malus, this tree is extremely resistant to pests and disease, one of the reasons that we rate Malus Rudolph so highly.

This pretty little crab apple is a perfect choice to introduce colour and year-round interest for a small garden and makes an attractive small avenue tree.

Malus Rudolph is sometimes nicely paired up with Malus evereste as their features nicely complement one another.

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

Mature height: 3-7m
