Crabapple timeline

I assembled many of my crab apple pictures by date. These are from the center of Minnesota, except a few Whitney crabs pictures I added for comparison from other forum members. Small Chunks climate is similar to mine to ripening should be about the same time.

This might give a hint of ripening or drop timing as well as apple size.

In 2017, I left some Kerr on the tree to check drop times. I harvested all of them this year.

Morse bunches crabs are more of a bush type with much variation in size and only one or two were hardy here. Apple size was from 3/4 inch and down.

My Whitney is not yet bearing fruit, but the RocksnStumps photos give you an idea of size and ripening time.

This yellow seedling with a pink blush is smaller in size than the previous yellow seedling I have no idea if I started this one or if it came from my wife’s Grandma.

I purchased these and saved some seed from them. They were similar to Trailman and Centennial.

In 2017, I picked all of the crabs I could reach from the Buckman Crab.
