Early-mid bloom. Interplanting crabs in solid, one-variety blocks of apples allows more uniform cultural practices and prevents accidental mixing of varieties at harvest. Crabs should be interplanted in staggered rows, allowing one Crabtree for every 10 apple trees. They can be planted between two normal spaced trees and trained as a spindle. We strongly suggest planting several varieties of crabs. Our pollinizing crabs are white flowered.
