Malus ‘Golden Hornet’


A strongly upright, hardy, deciduous tree.


Prolific bright-pink flower buds open to single white flowers, which are followed by an abundance of golden-yellow fruit. The fruit ripen late summer to early Autumn, and make a truely wonderful Crabapple jelly with a golden colour.


Bright green foliage in Spring and Summer, turning golden yellow in Autumn.


Tree Size:


Dwarf: Can be kept to 1.5 m high, but must be supported with a stake.


Semi-dwarfing: 7 m tall x 4 m wide


Crabapples are small trees that are hardy once established. Grow in full sun to part shade. Will grow well on most soils, but prefers a deep, moist, loamy soil.


Pruning requirements are minimal.


Crabapples are self-fertile, and make useful pollinators for eating and cooking apples.
