Crabapples

CRABAPPLE - EDIBLE

All crabapples are edible, no matter what the size. However, the smaller fruit have the same size seeds as larger fruit, thus they have less pulp surrounding the seeds.
 

REMOVING FRUIT

Unwanted fruit can be removed by: 

1. Handpicking; 

2. Vigorously shake the tree when fruit are small; 

3. A mixture of three (3) tablespoons of Sevin (carbaryl) insecticide per gallon of water and applied within twenty to twenty-five (20 to 25) days of petal fall. Avoid spraying when petals are still present as Sevin is toxic to bees.
