Created at the University of Minnesota in 1949 as a cold hardy apple pollinator. Its most famous off spring is the Wealthy Apple, also of the UofM system. This bloomer grows well with mid to late dropping apples. Its flowers are a standard 

The crabapple itself is large for a crabapple measuring about 2" across. It is circular with a long stem, rounded calyx, and noticeable vertical striping. It tends to russet at the poles the longer it stays on the tree. The apple ripens in late September to early October but does not ripen all at once allowing individuals to spread their harvest out over several weeks. The flesh is yellow and breaking with a good crunch. 

The Chestnut Crabapple is primarily used for cider production and fresh eating though one can certainly bake with it. The cider it produces is tart
