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?
That is what it looks like now
In the spring it has beautiful white blossoms
All these years it has never had

until now!
tiny little crab apples
that are now falling on the ground
We are the PugRanch Kids
Bailey, Hazel & Greta


  1. Take it from dat tree likes a hawk or they might just chop it down and then you will has no more fruit again...just like pee-cans.


  2. How Pretty :-) but not sure if its safe for you guys to eat that. Be careful. Happy Friday. Lots of Golden Woofs, Sugar
    BTW: have a tasty TREATS giveaway on my blog today, gotta check it out and see my balancing tricks too :-) Golden Woofs

  3. 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

  4. Oh aren't the little crab apples cute. Happy harvesting.
    Have a fabulous Friday.
    Best wishes Molly

  5. Oh Greta we have one of those in our yard and if i could lay out there under it for weeks on end and just eat those little apples i would...i loves them!!!! We also have another apple tree that has nevers had fruit and this year it had so much the branches must have been the year for fruit.

  6. 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)

  7. Wow! That spindly little tree grew into a beautiful one! I wonder, can you eat those little crab apples?
    Have a great weekend!

  8. Congrats on 19 years in the house. It is nice that the tree rewarded you with such small gifts! Lee and Phod

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

  10. What a transformation. Congrats on your fruit crop - and you only had to wait 19 years, BOL.

  19. They are very pretty and very tiny-- but they are apples for sure!

  20. What a wonderful surprise! Did you do anything with them? Here are some recipes from the "Crab Apple Queen."

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