Malus baccata is also known as the Siberian crab. It makes an excellent choice if you want a hardy garden tree for a difficult situation.
In spring the tree produces a fine show of fragrant white blossom in great profusion. In autumn clusters of small red / orange fruitlets are borne.
Malus baccata is native to northern Asia, a region with exceptionally cold winters and often hot summers.
Its excellent cold-hardiness and general disease-resistance have made Malus baccata a popular starting point in apple and crab-apple breeding programmes. It is also used as a rootstock by apple growers in colder zones - it does not have much dwarfing effect on the scion variety, but it does make it more likely to survive harsh winters.
