Malus NUVAR® Marble

  • Flower colour: White
  • Leaf colour: Green
  • Growth habit: Upright-spreading
  • Fruit colour: Orange / Red

Malus NUVAR® Marble is a modern crab-apple developed in the UK. The white blossom and upright tree are attractive, but the main appeal is the large fruitlets, which ripen early in the season, and are ideal for making crab-apple jelly.

NUVAR® Marble was developed by John Breach, a grower in Kent in the 1970s. It is related to the popular Discovery apple, and inherits that variety's good horticultural characteristics and disease resistance.

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).
