Malus x robusta 'Red Sentinel' / Crab apple
A small tree for winter interest, especially good were space is limited, such as in small gardens. In April, the tree is covered in pink-white flowers, which are followed in autumn by shiny red fruit. These crab apples last really well on the tree, providing they are not eaten by birds, with the apples often weighing down the branches. This crab apple is self fertile, meaning no other tree is needed to produce fruit. It is also a good pollinator for other apple trees.
Irish-grown plants, 175-200cm tall, 7.5 litre pot.
Generally available in our Monkstown shop. Due to the size and weight of this plant, it can only be delivered in County Dublin.
