Spectacular, Decorative Crabapple

Dolgo Crabapple Tree is a large and lovely crabapple variety. It would do well as a specimen tree in your yard, used as a windbreak, or for wildlife and riparian plantings.

Your Dolgo Crabapple tree has been a common landscape tree in generations past and still evokes wonderful childhood memories for many. The show begins in early April when the Dolgo Crabapple sprouts soft pink buds that open to an explosion of fragrant, self-pollinating, white flowers. The bloom lasts for weeks!

In fall the shiny, deep-green foliage turns a stunning, bright yellow that is certain to brighten your landscape.

As attractive as this well-known tree is, it’s just as valued for its juicy fruit that is sure to attract birds and wildlife…as well as friends and neighbors.

The brilliant crimson fruit ripens in August and are about the size of small plums. Sweeter and larger than other crabapples, the fruit is excellent for eating fresh, making pies, butter, jams, jellies, ciders and sauces.

Dolgo Crabapple will reach a height of about 20 feet with a 30 foot spread. It is a good pollinator because the long bloom period overlaps many other crabapples.

Dolgo is cold hardy, growing well in zones 3-9…which is just about anywhere! It is very disease resistant and the persistent fruit provides a food source for wildlife through the winter.

A decorative tree spring and fall, useful for windbreaks, hardy and disease resistant…and a source of food for wildlife! What else could a homeowner wish for in a landscape tree!

* Extended Season of White Blooms
* Fall fruit
* Wildlife interest
* Cold hardy

Wildlife food Review by Hunter Bob
I love to let these apple go into the fall as the deer really like them. I needed to fence the Dolgo tree until it got big enough to take the deer pressure.
Flowers Review by Maryanne
I do not have a single tree that has as many flowers as this one. Real pretty in the spring.
Great for anything apples! Review by Grandma
I have one of these trees in East Helena, Montana and we didn't do anything with them until two years ago. We would eat once occassionally and then I advertized apples for free if someone wanted to come pick the apples and use them they could. I also have other types of apple tree's. Then one of the ladies picking the apples tasted the Dolgo Crabapple and thought she would like them for regular apple juice for her family. I took several into the house and put them through the juicer and took several little cups of the juice outside to the pickers and after they had a taste of the juice they all wanted some of those apples and picked it bare. One group made wine out of the apples and is back this year to make wine again. Others took a bag full home and were going to check them out and come back and get more if the recipe turned out. So I can only guess that the apples off the Dolgo tree will be bare by the weekend which starts tomorrow.
other use for Dogo Crabapple Review by Terry Lubrick
Around 1980s we lived in Northwestern Ontario, and inherited a gorgeous Dolgo Crabapple tree. With an overabundance of this fruit, we made homemade "frujit leather" in our oven. The first kind(without sweetness) we made more than two dozen rolls for ourselves. With the second kind, we added honey to taste, and this was fabulous. The fruitleather lasted a long time in our cupbourd without major packaging.
Wow! Review by Rick
Oddly enough, even though we planted our Dolgo back in April of this year, there is already fruit on the tree. I am completely surprised. Does anyone know if I should pull it off this year to encourage tree growth?
