Callaway Crabapple Tree
Callaway Crabapple Tree is strikingly beautiful, a naturally dwarf variety, and perfect for your yard or landscape. Cascades of snow-white blossoms in the spring are followed by an abundant harvest of teardrop-shaped, sparkling red, sweet-tart apples, great for eating, pickling, and jelly. Callaway is very productive and disease resistant and should grow to only about 6 ft. in height.
