Description

Grown for its blossom and fruit, Malus x 'Gorgeous' has masses of very large flowers (up to 3cm across) which are pink in bud and open to pure white. In autumn, large numbers of glossy, orange-red fruit appear on the branches. An upright and open tree when young, this starts to spread as it matures with gently weeping branches. The fruit can be cooked to make good crab apple jelly!
