    Gorgeous deep red color, one inch long crabapple. Delicious apple flavor with spritely acidity but also some sweetness to balance. I can't wait to have more in future years, they are very good little crabs.

    Haven't tasted yet. Common crabapple on the Canadian Prairies. Bright red fruit about 1" (2-3 cm) across. Good for canning whole. Very sweet for a crab -- can eat out of hand, if you are willing to put up with lots of cores. (About 1 dozen dolgos = 1 normal apple)
