Thunderchild Flowering Crab
Parkland 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.

Parkland Apple is an extremely hardy, medium sized apple tree The apples have excellent reviews, they are juicy, crisp, and slightly tart. Apples will be ready to harvest in July-August and will produce apples which are yellow and green with a red blush overlay.

Parkland Apple also makes for a nice accent tree with slightly scented, white flowers blooming in spring that will make a striking feature to any landscape. Ensure you have an additional apple or pear tree within 150 m (500’) to ensure cross pollination and fruit production occur.
