Are the fruits from Robinson crabapple usable for "pickling"?
Judith F on Feb 9, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Yes, they are suitable for pickling. We even have an article about pickling crabapples: crabapple pickling: //
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.
