The Chestnut Crabapple, introduced by the University of Minnesota in 1946, is a small-sized, hardy, and vigorous variety. The fruit, up to 2 inches in diameter, is yellow with a pleasant nut-like flavor, and can be used for fresh eating, making apple jelly, and as a pollinator. It blooms in early to mid-May and is also valued as an ornamental tree. The apples have a rosy red blush and some russeting over a yellow base, and are known for their rich, sweet, and nutty flavor, reminiscent of apple cider, with notes of nutmeg, caramel, vanilla, and citrus. Chestnut Crabapples are a mid-season apple that does not store well and are suitable for both fresh eating and cider making.
