Thunderchild Flowering Crab
no image

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.

September Ruby is a hardy tree developed for the Prairie Fruit Breeding Cooperative. Our stock is grafted onto V3 or Siberian Crab rootstock for better planting. September Ruby is a vigorous grower that is resistant to fire blight. It is popular among orchards for its annual production. Its apples are very good for eating and cooking. This tree blooms in mid May for an attractive ornamental.

Although the height of this tree is listed as 20ft, it can grow to just 6ft on dwarfing rootstock like V3.
