New Crab apple
« on: February 15, 2012, 05:44 PM »
New Crab apple I bought last week at my local bonsai megastore.

Currently just over Shohin size with a very hefty trunk. Produced in Spain, apparently.

Front, back, close up front.

So Benson and Hedges is still alive in Europe? Interesting. Havent seen them since 2000.

I love the stainless background, it really adds depth.

Still have this one Jerry?

That's a lot of fruit for such a small tree, should be very pretty in fall colors.  Please post when it turns.

Hey Jerry,

Just thinking the other day, we haven't heard from you in a while!

Thanks for the update! Good tree.

Nice to see you back!

Wow, I'm surprised that it can carry so much.  It's really nice lower in the pot, what a lovely tree.

Slightly bigger pot worked better.

I've got several - some with even more apples...I'll start a new thread.

Congratulations on keeping apples through winter.  That's a difficult task indeed, especially with birds, squirrels, chipmunks, etc.  I hope you have many more apples next/this year.

Was sat in a greenhouse. We don't have anything big enough around here to eat these apples...

Here at the end of June - we had another cold winter this year, so lots of blossom and apples.

Jerry, Beautiful crab, thanks for sharing.

Do you have to use fungicide regularly on your Malus? or is this species resistant?

Thanks and regards,

Ray

No funguses - but then I treat everything with fungicide in spring just to be on the safe side (after a 3 years spell of blackspot on all my elms.)

They have had woolly aphids this year for the first time and even one airlayered Crabapple had all its foliage eaten by caterpillars before I noticed...
