Pioneer Rose Crabapple (Malus ‘Pioneer Rose’)


Malus ‘Pioneer Rose’ was discovered by Helen Serpells in Myrtleford, Victoria, Australia. Deep rose-red buds preceed similar coloured flowers with young bronze foliage. Fruit is large plum-coloured with pink flesh and said to be edible although very tart. Indicates it may be a chance cross between an eating apple and a crabapple. A hardy and attractive small tree first brought into commercial production by Stephen Ryan of Dicksonia Rare Plants.
