Wickson Crab Apple Tree


The Wickson crab apple tree not only produces unique crab apples because of their high sugar content, but is also one of the few apple varieties native to California. Since they are not only very sweet, but also tart, they are great for crabapple jelly as well as hard cider. They bear heavy crops annually in addition to being great pollinators due to their ability to produce large quantities of viable pollen.

General Tree Height/Caliper: Most of our fruit trees (apple, peach, apricot, plum, pear, nectarine, quince, and cherry) are grafted/budded and are 4-6' tall with a caliper/diameter of about 1/4-3/4". Most have more than 5' height and 1/2" diameter. The other trees are seedlings, such as pawpaw, mulberry, persimmon, shade, berry, and flowering trees which range from 18-36" tall.

A rootstock primarily controls a tree's size and how early it bears fruit. Learn more about our specific rootstocks.
