Malus 'Marble' ® NUVAR

Crab Apple

Description: Beginning green-yellow, the crab apples transform into a glowing vibrant pink hue, before fading slightly to feature spectacular pink and yellow marbling over the surface. Attractive single white flowers in spring, amid the green foliage that turns pretty autumn shades as the seasons change.

History: Developed by John Breach, Kent in the 1970s.

Malus Growing Tips: Crab Apples are self-fertile, and very useful as pollinators for a variety of fruit trees. Full sun or part shade lover, best grown in fertile, moist, deep, loamy soils. Requires minimal pruning in late winter or spring to remove damaged, diseased or misplaced growth.

Height and Spread (after 10 years): 4m x 3m
