Q:

When are crab apples in season?

A:

Crabapple trees usually bear fruit during the summer and fall, but they may still bear fruit well into the winter. They blossom during the spring, producing masses of white, pink or red flowers. Because of their attractive blossoms, they are often grown as ornamental landscape plants.

Crabapples and apples are close relatives. They are both members of the family Rosaceae and the genus Malus. The main difference between crabapples and apples lies in their size. A crabapple's diameter is 2 inches or less, while an apple's diameter is generally larger than 2 inches. Crabapples are tart and are spiced or made into jelly.
