Thunderchild Flowering Crab
Chui Lum Tao (CLT) Peach

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.

Chui Lum Tao Peach (CLT) is a very cold hardy peach cultivar. The taste and form of these peaches is reported to be similar to the other cold hardy peach varieties. The root system on this variety is known to be more vigorous than most peaches.

This variety is resistant to powdery mildew, but has a shorter window to accept successful budding and chipping. Because it is relatively uniform in height and stem diameter when young, it is easy to work with in orchard production.

This is a favourite choice for those in the BC interior and in Southern Ontario. Many find this rootstock to be both hardy and higher yielding than others. The Chui Lum Tao Peach is considered to be true to seed.
