Malus Sugar Tyme ('Sutyzam')
Description: An upright, oval, deciduous tree with slender, ovate, serrate, dark green leaves, which turn yellow in autumn. In May, fragrant, white flowers emerge from pale pink buds, followed by red to purple-red crab apples.
History: Introduced by Lake County Nursery in 1988.
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.
