John Downie


Type: Crab apple, culinary and used as a pollinator tree

Out of stock


A beautiful specimen tree and very useful pollinator owing to their lavish display and long flowering period, crabapples like John Downie are often interplanted in commercial apple orchards to assist with pollination, and are equally suitable for smaller gardens. Fruits can be used to make an excellent jelly.

John Downie is available on our crabapple rootstock only, so no manual rootstock selection is required when placing your order.
