Dolgo Crab is a Siberian crabapple imported to South Dakota in the late 1800's. One of the best all purpose crab apples.
Produces elongate, oval shaped 1 1/2 inch crimson fruit. It is a tart little apple, but it can be eaten fresh, or it makes a rich, ruby red jelly. The fruit is so bright in color and abundant that the tree looks like a decorated Christmas tree when viewed from a distance.
The fruit ripens in early September, and self fruitful. Resistant to cedar apple rust, mildew, and fireblight. The tree will grow to about 10' on EMLA 7 rootstock. Cold hardy to zone 3.
