If you are interested in growing your own apple trees, one of the main things you will need to look into is whether your tree requires a pollinator. Most apple trees do. What you may not be aware of is that you can use a Crabapple tree as a pollinator. You will want to make sure that the bloom time of the Dolgo will overlap with the apple tree that you want to pollinate. Being beautiful on their own the Dolgo has wonderful pink buds in early April that open to fragrant white flowers. It is a great ornamental smaller yard tree at only 15-20 feet in height. They also tend to ripen sooner than the other types of crabapple trees.

The Dolgo crabapples are bright red and large in size, similar to small plums. The Dolgo tends to be sweeter than the smaller varieties of crabapple trees. They can be eaten directly off the tree. They are often used for many of the same things you would use regular apples for like pies, sauces, ciders, butter, jellies and jams and can be included with the regular apples to add more flavor to the recipe. To pollinate, they will need to be within 100 feet of the other apple trees for optimal pollination. They will attract birds and add great color to your landscape.

The Dolgo is an exceptionally beautiful tree and is hardy from zones 3 to 9. It does need full sun and is not picky about soil.
