Malus x robusta 'Red Siberian'

Quick Glance

Vigorous, deciduous tree to 12m eventually with dark-green oval leaves to 10cm in length. In spring, bears pink-tinged, white blossom which are followed in the autumn by long-lasting, red fruit (crabs). If the winter is milder and birds have little need to eat the crabs, then it is possible for the tree to retain previous seasons fruit whilst producing new leaves and blossoming in the spring.
