Source of plant

Bailey Nurseries


These trees are from Beverly Nursery in Indiana, where they were a chance seedling in a nursery row. They are currently under evaluation at Bailey Nurseries, who will take care of the naming and patenting of the trees should they prove to be worth patenting. In 2000 the trees were 8-10' tall and 7-8' across. It is believed that these trees are a cross between Malus 'Prarie Fire' and 'Louisa'. They show little scab succeptibility and have early fruit drop, so they may be good for use as street trees. From a conversation with Dave Allen IOCS.
