My Mum used to make crabapple jelly. It was quite nice but I preferred other kinds of jam. We had a tree in the back yard. No idea what kind, I didnt know there were so many different cultivars.Flowering Crabapples, Malus spp., are ornamental trees that produce showy blossoms and brightly colored fruits known as pommes. There are some 30 distinct species of crabapple and hundreds of cultivars, making exact identification difficult. This particular tree has brilliant white & pink flowers in the spring, and holds its fruit through the winter. Other species drop the fruit when it ripens. Crabapple fruit tends to be very sour, even bitter, although some varieties are used to make jelly.
