Crab Apple 'Golden Hornet'
Malus x zumiPink buds open to reveal pretty white cup shaped blossom in April and May, followed by spectacular crops of bright golden-yellow fruits that make an eye-catching autumn display and hold on the tree well into winter. Crab Apple 'Golden Hornet' makes an attractive and productive specimen tree for smaller gardens, with a long season of interest. Crab apple fruits can be harvested to make delicious crab apple jelly. Any unpicked fruits will soften after a few frosts to create a sumptuous food source for wild birds. Crab apples are self fertile and if planted near orchard apple trees make excellent pollinators. Rootstock: M26. Height and spread: 3m (10').
Estimated time to cropping once planted: 1 year.
