No Longer Fruitless

19 years ago
 Mom & Dad bought the property where we live
 
One of the first things they planted
 in the spring of 1995
 
 was a tree
 
a non fruit bearing
snow crab tree
 
 
 
Can you see that spindly little tree?
 
 
Well
 
That is what it looks like now
 
 
In the spring it has beautiful white blossoms
 
 
Butt
 
All these years it has never had
 
fruit!

 
until now!
 
 
Yep,
tiny little crab apples
that are now falling on the ground

Hi There Bailey, Hazel and Greta!
I love the photo on the garden swing chair, I cant believe how much that tree has grown and now to see those tiny little crab apples, has anyone tasted them? We have crab apples and they are so very bitter but good if you put them in a jam with some other fruits like blackberries (which I have helped my Momma to do) I just love natures crazy ways! Love and Licks from your furiend Frank xxxxxx

Wow, what a super tree! A wise dog once said: never underestimate a leggy stick, once it can be a (pee)-tree. We could found a corporation, I can sell the apple-puree and you the apple-mini. Bet we will get rich in zilch :o)

Have a great weekend!

That's so cool! My parents planted a guayava tree around 1990 and it stills sprouts guayavas every fall and winter. :)

What a wonderful surprise! Did you do anything with them? Here are some recipes from the "Crab Apple Queen." http://blogs.denverpost.com/food/2012/10/01/crab-apple-queen-shares-recipes/15120/

Wrigs says, if you don't want them, he'll be happy to eat them. :-)
