Some Disease Resistant Crabs


When choosing a flowering crab, it is a good idea to keep disease resistance in mind. The following disease resistant crabs are highly recommended.


White Angel Crab

Hardy to zone five, this upright, spreading tree is 20 feet in height with an equal width. It features pink buds and white flowers. The shiny red fruits are long lasting. This tree is known to be one of the heaviest flowering and fruiting of the crabs. White Angel has excellent resistance to mildew and fair to good resistance to fire blight, rust, and scab.


White Cascade Crab

Hardy to zone five, this is a graceful, weeping tree that can reach 10 to 15 feet in height with a matching spread. The dark pink buds open to reveal the white blossoms that open early in the season. When in full bloom, this is one of the loveliest of the crab apples.

The fruits are yellow. White Cascade has excellent disease resistance to rust, fire blight, and mildew and good resistance to scab.
