suitability of two crab apple species for Colorado

Asked November 3, 2017, 4:00 PM EDT

Are the Chesnut Crabapple and the Whitney Crabapple (e.g., Stark Bros) suitable for Jefferson County, CO (5500'), and if so and one of each were planted, should both be expected to produce fruit?
Thank you.

Both crabs should do just fine at 5500 ft. in Jefferson County. Both should be expected to produce fruit if the blossoms do not freeze in the spring.

Thank you.
