The Crabapple Comparison Chart is a list of common crabapple trees grown at Johnson's Nursery. Crabapples are versatile, smaller-scale ornamental trees. They put on a stunning spring show of flowers (often late-April to mid-May in Wisconsin). After flowering, they begin to produce tiny, characteristic fruit anywhere from July through November. The fruit also has color, size, and persistence variations. The fruit is relished by wildlife.
Disease resistance is a major consideration when selecting crabapples. Apple scab is one of the most common fungal pests of crabapples, and fire blight is another disease. All the crabapples listed below and rated on their resistance to such diseases.
