Owner's comments

The Huonville Crab was discovered by Bob Magnus of Woodbridge Fruit Trees in Tasmania, Australia. http://www.woodbridgefruittrees.com.au/woodbridgefruittrees/crab-apples/99-huonville-crab-semi-dwarfing.html My tree seems very resistant to disease in general, and was not affected by the woolly aphids that invaded the garden last summer.
