Centennial Crabapple / MM106 [SPRING]
Be prepared for heavy crops of 1-1/2 inch oval fruit with a sweet flavor. Use the crisp, juicy white fleshed fruit for canning, making jelly or just popping in your mouth. The fruit is a bright orange-red. It ripens in mid-August. Compact and great as a child's tree, it produces an abundance of red flower buds that open to a showy white. The tree is highly scab resistant. Its mid-season bloom makes it an excellent pollinizer. A natural dwarf, it grows to only 8 ft tall on semi dwarf. USDA Zones 3-9.
