Apple - Crab
Apples and crab apples are in the rose family, Rosaceae, in the genus Malus.

Flowering crab apples are adaptable but thrive in rich loam type soil (a combination of clay, silt, and sand). Regardless of soil type, good drainage is a must for tree health. Crab apples grow best in a moist, slightly acidic soil with a pH of 5.0 to 6.5.

Blossom colours range from pearly white through delicate pinks to a deep red.

Crab apples are differentiated from apples based on fruit size. If fruit is two inches in diameter or less, it is termed a crab apple. If the fruit is larger than two inches, it is classified as an apple.
