Commonly known as Apple, this deciduous tree enchants amateur and professional gardeners with ripe, juicy fruits every harvesting season.
Malus species account for 30-55 varieties across the Rosaceae family. The plant is a deciduous tree that bears green to red fruits every harvesting season. The foliage is lance-shaped and has a smooth, glossy, deep-green texture. The tree produces fragrant blooms with five petals in spring. The flowers start out as pink and white, with the pink eventually fading out. Apple and Crabapple trees are usually grown for their fruits, the main identification feature. The fruits vary from green to deep red in color, sour to honey-sweet in taste, and soft to crispy in texture. The whole tree typically grows 10-12 feet (3-3.6 m) tall and spreads the branches in a canopy manner.
