Thunderchild Flowering Crab

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.

Krazulya Pear was developed in Russia and is said to be one of the most delicious and hardiest pears. “Krazulya” - meaning “beauty” in Russian - is true to its name in that the pears are a luscious yellow with bright, red cheeks.

A peculiar feature of Krazulya Pear is that the pears can be eaten directly off the tree and don’t need time to ripen. The downside is that the pears only keep 1-2 weeks.

Krazulya Pear has been described as juicy and buttery, with a slight spice undertone. An additional pear tree is required within 150 m (500’) for cross pollination and fruit production to occur.
