Thunderchild Flowering Crab
Prairie Sensation Apple

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.

Prairie Sensation Apple is a cold hardy tree that produces large, delicious apples that are great for fresh eating.

Developed at the University of Saskatchewan, the apples produced by Prairie Sensation have been reported to have a juicy, crisp, and sweet flavor. Beautifully round in shape, these apples range from yellow to green with a reddish overlay.

Like all other apples, Prairie Sensation requires an additional pollinator, such as a pear, crabapple, or another apple to ensure fruit production. Keep in mind most residential neighbourhoods will have another pollinator present, but it does not hurt to get two just in case.

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