Hyslop Edible Crab Apple
Malus domestica 'Hyslop'
Hyslop Crab apple is an edible crab that can also be planted as an ornamental. The tree is vigorous and very hardy with a bluish bloom. It produces one inch fruit that are deep crimson red. The fruit is juicy upon ripening, but tends to become dry and mealy if stored. Ripens later in the season in October. Good for jelly, pickling, and cider blending.
Hyslop is an old heirloom and has been around since 1869.
