Callaway Crabapple – Red Beauty!
We’ve been looking a long time for a crabapple that will fruit well in the Deep South and here it is! The Callaway crabapple is recommended by the University of Florida as one of the few varieties that will perform well in the humid Southeast. Originating from the Callaway Gardens in southeast Georgia, the Callaway crabapple fruits well as far south as North Florida. Beautiful white flowers in spring, are followed by large, bright red crabapples. Fruit ripen from late summer to fall, just ahead of the native crabapple. Fruit is excellent for jelly making. Self-fertile. Zone 5-8.
