Centennial Crab Apple on G.890 (Spring 2023)


The cutest, sweetest little hybrid crabapple.

An upright, rounded tree, Centennial Crab is extremely cold hardy–up to zone 3. This crab is an easy tree to grow; it is scab resistant and somewhat fireblight resistant. The mid-season bloom is white.

The fruit is medium to large, about two inches in diameter, and slightly elongated. The skin is bright red mottled over orange, and the flesh is white, sweet, and mildly acidic. This is a perfect little snacking apple, and it is also used for baking and sauces.

Centennial was developed in 1957 at the University of Minnesota in Excelsior.
