Malus Floribunda crab apple trees

  • Pick: Late-season
  • Flowering group: 2
  • Self-fertile
  • Disease-resistance: Good

Also known as the Japanese Crab, Malus floribunda produces a very attractive spreading tree. The blossom is pink/white and, as the Latin name suggests, particularly abundant. Flowering is relatively early in the blossom season.

The yellow fruits are also borne in considerable quantities, and although not as dramatic as the spring blossom display, are a useful resource for birds.

This variety has been used in a number of breeding programmes to produce more disease resistant apple varieties.

Pollination guide for Malus Floribunda

Malus Floribunda is in flowering group 2. Malus Floribunda is self-fertile and does not need a pollination partner, although fruiting may be improved if there is a compatible tree of a different variety nearby.

Like most crab-apples it blooms over a long period and is therefore a good pollinator for other apple and cider-apple varieties flowering at the same time.
