I'm looking for a nice crapapple tree that will be located in the top corner of my backyard. As it stands now, it would be planted to the right of 3 other fruit trees of which I plan to maintain at around 9-10 feet tall. I do not plan to prune the the crabapple for height at all and its shadow should not obstruct the other trees.
The purpose of this tree is primarily ornamental and as a distant focal point that keeps interest most of the year. It would be a strong (though not necessary) plus for it to have good enough fruit (for tasty jam or fresh eating). Disease and insect resistance is always desired.
I've discovered that there are TONS of crabapple selections. Here are the trees I was looking at thus far.
Right now, the Donald Wyman and Prairie Fire are probably my top two choices based on the little I know. Any suggestions? I'm all ears (and eyes). :-)
