Thunderchild Flowering Crab
Harcourt 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.

The Harcourt apple is a cold hardy apple produced by the University of Alberta. The fruit is good for fresh eating or baking, and ripens in late August.
