Not just an ordinary crabapple, the Chestnut stands out as one of the best tasting of the crabapples. It’s a crisp, crunchy and sweet apple with a pleasant nut like flavour. The Chestnut Crabapple averages around 5cm in size and keeps up to a month in cold storage. Excellent to eat fresh off the tree and also good for juicing and baking. A local favourite to use in cider making. Developed at the University of Minnesota.
