The Wild Crabapple tree is a deciduous tree, usually about 20 to 25-feet tall. The bark is grayish-brown, and scaly. The leaves are broad and oval–shaped with serrated edges. In May the flowers appear in clusters of about five, each on a short stalk. They are white with a pinkish tinge. The size of the apple can vary a good deal. Crabapple fruit is green or red. Some species and cultivars have orange and pink blushes. The small fruits are 2 inches or fewer in diameter, and the tree leaves are shorter and narrower than those of apple trees. Crabapples need full sun for optimal growth. The crabapple is grown in woods, scrubland and in road and field hedgerows. Preferred zones are 4 through 10 with the optimal growth zones being 4 through 8.
