Are the fruits from Robinson crabapple usable for "pickling"?

BEST ANSWER: Yes, they are suitable for pickling. We even have an article about pickling crabapples: crabapple pickling: //www.starkbros.com/growing-guide/article/homemade-pickled-crabapples
What is the fall color?
Melissa W on Jun 14, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The fall foliage color will vary depending upon where you live, but it's most often a vibrant orange.
do you need 2 trees to have fruit?
Jeff N on Apr 28, 2017
BEST ANSWER: If you are speaking strictly about this crabapple, no; it is not a fruiting tree. Almost all apple trees need a pollinator, and fruiting crabapple trees serve as good partners as long as the two trees have a similar bloom time.

Robinson Flowering Crab
The little tree has leafed out and seems to be doing fine, so far. We will see what next spring brings.
