Description How to Grow More Info Delivery
A lovely, edible Crab Apple producing crisp, sharply flavoured, deep-red fruits which remain on the tree well into winter. Crab Apple 'Diable Rouge' is a particularly attractive cultivar in Spring. Pink blooms nestle amongst the new foliage which emerges a deep purple shade, before deepening to green in summer. The foliage is equally appealing as autumn takes hold and the leaves turn to rich, buttery yellow. This compact, deciduous tree has a rounded, spreading habit that makes a pleasing focal point in cottage gardens and orchards. Height: 2.5m (8’). Spread: 3m (10’).

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.
