NUVAR® Marble

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.
