How to Care for Crabapple Trees
It is extremely cold hardy. Grow crabapples best across the United States in USDA growing zones 4-8. This tree is also pest and diseases resistant especially to fire blight and apple scab. Makes an excellent pollinator for other fruit trees in the area.
Plant your trees in full sun and well-drained soil for best results. During their first year, they will require regular watering, especially during the warmer months to establish a strong root system.
Prune this dwarf Crabapple Tree in the early spring so it has the whole growing season to recover. May benefit from adding special blend slow-release fertilizer at the top of the root ball once a year for maintenance.
Please note, these crab apple trees do not ship bare root. They ship rooted in a container in the soil for the health of the tree. The best time of year to plant this flowering tree is in early spring.
