With its cascade of speckled yellow-coloured fruits Malus Butterball is perhaps the prettiest of all crab-apples for autumn colour.
Butterball is also a good choice if you want to make crab apple jelly. The fruitlets hang on the tree for an extended period, and can be used for cooking throughout this period.
The spring blossom is pure white. Our 2-year Butterball trees will usually produce blossom in the first spring after planting.
