I am in my front yard. We have lots of crab apples.
What an interesting name for an apple.
It sure does not look like a crab?
Our house is located in a subdivision that used to be a peach and apple orchard. We are the only one on our block that still have an apple tree.
What is a crab apple tree?
It is a dwarf size tree that bears small fruited apple.
Can you eat a crab apple?
Yes. However it is very sour/tart.
Many use crab apples to make candy, jellies and pickles.
Unfortunately, we don’t utilize these crab apples since we lived here. We were told due to the age of the tree it is only for ornamental purposes.
Well, lots of my furry friends (chipmunks and squirrels) are having a tasty time munching these crab apples.
Also, some of the kids on my block use these crab apples for a fun apple prints painting art.
We love having a crab apple tree on our front yard.
Many say having a fruit bearing tree in your front yard is said to lead to good fortune. Due to the bad weather we had for the past months, we noticed many branches fell off, lots of black and brown spots on the leaves and the crab apples are very bruised.
My family used a special fertilizer and hoping to revive it
… so will see what happens in Spring.
Definitely Tuesdays Just Got Tastier.
