What Kind Of Apples?
[Return to Topics]

Hi All! We have an apple tree in the yard, but the apples are a very small kind. This is not the first time the tree has bloomed, the land lady has no idea what kind they are or if the are ediable.(SP?) The are shaped like a regular apple but just small. Any ideas? We live in Tn. now if that's any help.

"lady apple - A tiny apple that can range in color from brilliant red to yellow with generous red blushing. Its flesh is sweet-tart and it can be eaten raw or cooked. Fresh lady apples are available during the winter months. They're also available canned, and are widely used for garnishing purposes."

Could be a neglected Jonathan Apple tree. They are one of the smaller apples anyway and if not tended to will produce stunted fruit. Still my favorite for pie at any size. If its a crabapple they are edible but not very tasty, very bitter. Have had some good crabapple jelly and jam though.

I know for sure they are NOT crabapples. The land lady did tell me that nothing has been done for the tree. You say I can eat and use them for baking?

Not really enough info for a good answer but here goes. A lot of factors could cause small apples one being that the tree is to thick and needs trimmed. They could also be crabapples about 2" in diameter. If you are absoutely positive that it is an apple tree take a bite from one and see how it tastes.
