Description How to Grow More Info Delivery Video

Quite spectacular in autumn! Heavy crops of glowing, golden fruits fill the branches of this attractive, deciduous tree. Malus ‘Butterball’ is a compact, small tree with an attractive spreading habit, making an unmissable focal point in the garden. The dark green foliage takes turns to orange and gold in autumn, providing a colourful backdrop for its ripening fruits.

It is equally attractive in spring when the branches are decorated with pretty, pink-flushed buds that open to white blossom. A superb specimen tree and a good pollinator for many eating apples. The fruits provide a valuable source of food for wild birds and can also be used to make crab apple jelly. Height: 5m (16’). Spread: 4m (13’).

Plant height and spread is seasonal therefore we list by pot size rather than a defined plant size. The height and spread of the plant delivered will vary depending on the season, meaning arrival images are an indication only.

Fruit trees do not suffer weed competition well. Keep weeds and grass clear from within a 30cm radius of base of the tree. In spring, while the ground is moist, apply a mulch of well rotted manure or garden compost around the base of the tree, taking care not to mound it up against the stem. This will help to retain moisture throughout the summer. Feed and water crab apple trees during particularly dry periods. Crab apples require only minimal pruning in late winter or spring, to remove damaged, diseased or misplaced growth. Crab apple fruits can be harvested from autumn onwards to make delicious crab apple jelly.
Plant crab apple trees in a sheltered, sunny position in any fertile, well drained soil. Prior to planting, incorporate plenty of well rotted manure or garden compost into the planting hole and drive the stake into the ground to support the tree. Staking after planting may result in damage to the root ball. Plant fruit trees at their original soil level and firm them into the ground. Fasten the tree to the stake using a tree tie, and water well.
