Chestnut Crabapple

Regular price $25.00

Chestnut Crab is one of the large fruiting selections (2+”), known for its sweet, nutty flavor. It tastes like fresh squeezed apple cider and it’s my favorite apple to eat from my orchard, which has over 25 varieties to choose from!

  • Plant Description

    The fruit hangs well into the season and is a great attractant for whitetails. This is a must have for anyone growing large fruiting crabapples for wildlife, and it serves as a great pollinator for other apple trees. We add the juice from these crabapples to our cider in the fall, and it’s always a big hit with our friends and family. Chestnut Crab just might be the secret ingredient to many blue ribbons given at state fairs for the best cider!
