Crabapple - Mini Me
Many home owners are looking for a small sized crab apple that will not grow to 10 m(30 ft) like most varieties being sold today. Our Mini-Me variety will grow to only 2-3 m( 6-9 ft) but has all the ornamental qualities of other crab apples...a beautiful display of white flowers in spring and hanging clusters of red "cherry-like" fruit that hangs on tree all fall and winter...no messy fallen fruit to clean up and wonderful food all winter for hungry birds and other wildlife.(you can eat them from tree too and the mini-me crabapples make great tasting apple butter or jelly).
Mimi-Me is very cold hardy( zone 2) and very resistant to apple pests and diseases.... thus easy to grow without sprays. This is our toughest crabapple and suggest planting these in Canada's most northern lands for wildlife food and human settlement.
