About Bunches and Bunches Red Crab:
Seed collected from this crab is from several trees growing together for the past 15 years. I have watched these trees produce Very heavy crops every year. The size of the Crabapples is Good sized for a crab averaging over 1/2″- 1″ and persists on the trees until spring. Branches are so loaded with Crab apples that they actually hang on the ground! Fantastic late winter food source. Plant with Morse Yellow Crab, Thicket Crab or Kerr Crab for all season food availability. I would use this tree as borders around food plots, property lines and under power lines!
