Kerr applecrabs are a really bright shiny dark red, late Sept.
bearing, tasty, crunchy, snack sized (2.5") little apple. They
keep better than most apples. I don't know how large the tree
would get because the tree here was invaded by borers and broke
off at the crown after it had reached bearing size. A second trunk
grew from above the graft to become bearing size and that broke
off in a violent wind. I grafted replacement trees but don't
think any of them still survive. A couple wet winters together
with our fairly flat slowly drained ground killed most of our
apple trees several years ago.
