‘Malus x robusta’ (Red Sentinel)
One of the most ornamental crab apples, with pretty, pink-tinged, white flowers in late spring, followed by masses of glossy, round, cherry-red fruit. The fruits garland the branches for much of the winter as the bright green leaves turn shades of yellow and gold before falling.
Here is the golden fruiting variety, (not my entry).
Malus x zumi (Golden Hornet)
These two trees were positioned back to back in no-man’s land in Powfoot, SW Scotland, they were completely stacked with sour, jelly making fruit.
