Malus Gorgeous

  • Flower colour: Pink - light
  • Leaf colour: Green
  • Fruit colour: Red

Malus Gorgeous is an attractive crab-apple tree which has lots of white blossom in spring.

In autumn it produces a mass of red crab-apples which are very good for crab-apple jelly.

The fruitlets are also persistent - they will stay on the tree into early winter, after the leaves have fallen.

We may also have 1-year bare-root trees of this variety - they are not shown here.

Leaves may not be present during winter, and we may prune some shoots to fit the delivery carton. Size may vary during the season and between batches. The container (if supplied) is only used for transporting the tree, which should then be planted out in the garden or in a much larger patio planter (not all species are suitable for patio planting).
