Round headed small tree. Branches are festooned with white apple blossoms in spring. Spectacular crops of bright crimson red fruit hang like cherries on long thin stalks to weigh down the outer branches. Crabapples make superb jelly. Fruit will persist on the trees until eaten by birds. Deciduous tree that grows at a moderate rate to reach 3m (H) x 3m (W) in 10 years.
