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 very cold hardy tree developed for the Prairie Fruit Breeding Cooperative. It is a vigorous grower that is resistant to fire blight and 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.

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