Malus domestica 'Dolgo'

One of the very best all-purpose crab apples! Dolgo bears large 1-inch, tart, crimson red fruits you can eat raw or make into a ruby-red apple jelly. Dolgo, which means "long" in Russian, describes the shape of the fruit, which is so brightly colored and abundant it looks like a Christmas tree from afar! Dolgo crapapples are scab and mildew resistant, featuring a cascade of white flowers in the orchard every spring. Fresh eaten, Dolgo tastes like a candied cranberry and adds a bitter-sharp flavor to ciders. The fruit is one of the first to ripen in the apple harvesting season. Great for low chill areas - only needs 400 chill hours to bloom profusely.

Ask a Question
  • I live in USDA Zone 9. If I order the Dolgo Crabapple (400 chill hours) what low chill variety should I use as a pollinizer?

    Fuji apples are good low chill options, like Beni Shogun.

Good shipment

Really impressed with the shipment, no damage and all plants are in good condition. Unfortunately the weather this year is a bit cold, I hope my plant survive. I have order a lots of fruits tree and plants from Raintree Nursery they never fail me.

Early producer

Planted this spring, harvested about 12-15 fruit this fall. Delicious and tart right off the tree. My kids love them! Super brilliant, red color.

Good-looking, healthy tree

The tree arrived about 3 weeks ago, packaged quite nicely - the padding had secured the tree well, the extensive root system was well-preserved, and the branches were all fully intact. I soaked the tree s roots overnight and planted it the next day. It bloomed a week later, producing a good show of sweet-smelling, white blossoms. It s about 4 tall, has a nice shape, and seems to have taken well to the yard. I m very satisfied with my purchase.

Beautiful tree received

Just received my Crabapple today. The packaging was great and the bare root tree was one of the nicest I have ever received buying online. It is approximately 4’ tall, beautifully shaped, and it looks fresh and healthy. Looking forward to having it in my yard.

Best apple ever

This is a wonderful apple by size, taste and color. Some of the apples are two inches and taste even better than honey crisp. They are not fully ripen yet but already taste great and juicy. Next spring I am planning to buy some more. Some apples been eating by insects but not this one.
