Gorgeous

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.
