Flowers, fruit, and fall colour... 'Dolgo' has it all. This crab apple has been in cultivation since the late 1800s, and is still going strong. The name means 'Long' in Russian, and refers to its fruit, longer than wide. It provides an early and profuse display of fragrant white flowers in spring, followed by edible and ornamental waxy red crab apples, that are high in pectin and flavour.
