Malus domestica 'Centennial'

Be prepared for heavy crops of small, sweet, oval-shaped fruit! Use these crispy, juicy, white-fleshed apples for canning, making jelly, or just popping in your mouth! Centennial is a bright orange-red apple that ripens early in the season, and its early-to-midseason bloom time makes it a fantastic pollinator for your home orchard. Centennial is also a great ornamental tree, producing an abundance of striking red buds that open into a showy display of snow white flowers!

Naturally dwarfing, Centennial tops out at 8' making it an easy fit for most locations. Good resistance to scab.

Ask a Question
  • Would Dolgo work as a pollinator for Centennial Crabapple? Thanks! :)

    Yes, they should cross pollinate just fine!

  • How resistant is this tree or its rootstock to fire blight?

    Centennial, as a crab apple, has some natural resisitance to scab, but not specific resistance to fire blight.

  • What is the size of the tree when shipped and the size of the container?

    This is shipped bareroot and is 4'-5' tall at the time of shipping

  • Can this grow in a (big) container in zone 6? To keep the roots out of the sewer line.

    For a time yes, with annual pruning. Eventually it will outgrow even a half wine barrel. It's not really a tree that will get into the sewer line though.

  • This crabapple is listed as "semi dwarf", but it says the mature height is 8'??

    "Semi dwarf" is a percentage of total vigor, in this case roughly 70%, which for this crabapple is about 8 feet tall. A different tree on the same stock may be up to twice as large, but Centennial just isn't a big tree even on it's own roots.

  • What is the shape/form of the Centennial Crabapple tree? Thank you!

    Pretty much the standard form of any other apple tree.

Centennial crabapple

A vole girdled my last centennial crabapple so I ordered a replacement from Raintree. Arrived alive with lots of branches and on time. Thanks

Fun and tasty

Very early ripening, cute and tasty. We ate these right off of the tree-they are very tangy and sweet. Last year's crop made delicious light golden applesauce.


One of the trees was not dormant. There were little green leafy buds on every branch.

Everything else looked great.
