Malus florentine features simple bright white flowers, which turn into clusters of small fruitlets in the autumn.
The most distinctive feature of this species is the deeply serrated pale green leaves. They turn golden orange in the autumn.
Seen in isoloation the combination of tiny berry-like fruitlets and the strangely serrated leaves can resemble the appearance of a cluster of redcurrants.
