Malus Pink Glow, also known as Malus Dolgo, is named for its elongated dusky pink fruits, which form in plum-like clusters in September. The fruit is on the larger size for a crab apple, making it easy to use in the kitchen - it is perfect for crab apple jelly and a good source of pectin for other fruit jellies.
The blossom is plain white but borne in profusion early in the apple-blossom season, making Pink Glow an excellent pollinator for all early-flowering apple varieties.
Our 2-year Pink Glow trees will usually produce blossom in the first spring after planting.
