Thunderchild Flowering Crab
Treasured Red Columnar 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.

This exciting new Columnar Apple has an exquisite texture and a flavour similar to a McIntosh apple. Super compact, they fit easily into small urban gardens or along fences and decks.
Unlike traditional apples that grow on horizontal branches, the Treasured Red bares fruit on short spurs that develop along the main tree trunk. The bright cherry red fruit ripens in Mid-September, and stores well!
