Malus x 'Dolgo'
The Dolgo Crabapple is a beautiful crab tree that has good cold tolerance and a high level of disease resistance. In spring, the tree is covered with white flowers and its green shiny leaves begin to form. Due to the long bloom time of its flowers, its a good pollinator for many other types of crabapple and apple trees. The Dolgo Crabapple produces a heavy crop of large 1 - 1.5" olive shaped crabapples. These crabapples are crimson in color and very flavorful. The fruit of this tree ripens in August and September and persists well into December. The size and flavor of the crabapple, along with its slow drop of fruit over an extended period of time make this an excellent selection for deer hunting plots.
