Dolgo makes excellent, ruby-color jelly and is also quite disease resistant. It gets my vote for top jelly crab. - Sam Brungardt, St. Paul, Minn. (USDA Hardiness Zone 4b)

Subject: [NAFEX] crab apples
I want to make crab apple jelly this year and was wondering if using apples picked from municipal plantings would work? Most of the apples are small _1-1/2 inch diameter.
I'd like to plant a crab apple tree for jelly also...any suggestions of varieties that are particularly disease resistant and good for clay soils in SE Ohio (zone 6)
