This fruit tree is native to Japan and was first collected in 1897 from Mount Fujiyama, Japan. It was named after the 19th century Japanese botanist Sugawa Tschonoski.
During the spring months, the Chonosuki Crab Apple Tree produces an abundance of white flowers that have a faint pink shade. After flowering, the tree produces globose yellow-green fruit.

In fact, Malus Tschonoskii is one of the best crabs for autumn colour. This highly rated ornamental tree has received the AGM RHS award of garden merit.
