Thunderchild Flowering Crab
Kerr Apple Crab

Thunderchild Flowering Crab is a hybrid crab apple known for its attractive and fragrant dark pink blossoms and deep purple mature leaves.

Tree farmers will find this hybrid appealing as a pollinator for other apples, while home growers will enjoy the red pome's ability to attract flocks of Cedar Waxwings in the early spring.

This species is reportedly resistant to fireblight.

Kerr Apple Crab is a cross between Dolgo and Haralson that originated in Manitoba. This hardy variety is so tasty that it is often compared to Golden Delicious. Kerr Apples keep well and are good for fresh eating, cooking, and juicing. As an ornamental, this tree blooms in mid-May with clusters of white flowers born from pink buds.

Note: We do not ship grafted apples to BC due to regulatory restrictions from the Canadian Food Inspection Agency.
