Add a burst of bold pink to your garden in the spring with the lovely Malus 'Harry Baker'. It offers large eye-catching fuchsia-pink flowers which are beautifully contrasted by deep green foliage. The young leaves have a hint of bronze when they first appear.
In autumn, glossy red fruits appear which hang on the tree well into winter long after the leaves have fallen. This makes a wonderful sight in an otherwise bare garden. Birds and other wildlife are attracted to the fruits, bringing movement and sound into your garden in the winter months.
Malus 'Harry Baker' offers fruit with a delicious sweet taste and is one of the most popular crab apples varieties. Crab Apple Harry Baker is fabulous for making crab-apple jelly. The fruits have a reddish-pink flesh which gives an attractive dark red colour to the jelly once it sets. The apples are also great for baking, using in apple tarts and reducing to a luscious, creamy apple sauce. The flesh is also high in pectin.
Your Malus ‘Harry Baker’ is a hardy tree and is tolerant of chalky, sandy, clay, and loamy soil. It requires little maintenance. Plant in full sun or partial shade for best results.
This well known crab-apple tree was named after Harry Baker, a Fruit Officer of the RHS during the 1980s. He is also the author of several books on fruit trees.
