Looking for a versatile plant that not only provides beautiful white flowers but also delicious fruit? Look no further than the Malus sylvestris European Crab Apple, also known as the French Crab Apple. This shrub or small tree is native to Europe and southwest Asia and is one of the parents of domestic apples. The yellow fruit, suffused with orange-red when ripening, is not only a tasty snack but also works to obviate constipation. The leaves can be used to make a pleasant tea, and the crushed fruit pulp can be applied as a poultice to heal inflammations and small flesh wounds. The dense crown of the Malus sylvestris European Crab Apple is often thorny and attracts wildlife. This deciduous tree is hardy to Zone 4 and in flower in May, with seeds ripening from September to October. It can grow in a variety of soil types, from light and sandy to heavy clay, and prefers moist soil in semi-shade or no shade.
