best crab apple varieties for Minnesota

Asked September 2, 2018, 12:16 PM EDT

Can you point me to literature that shows pictures and descriptions of the best disease resistant crab apple varieties that I can grow in Minnesota's Dakota County area? I'm replacing an old diseased tree and looking for an upright large disease resistant variety. Thank you!

Hi
Thank you for the crab tree question.
I am sending a link to an article by Beth Berlin, Extension Educator-Horticulture, University of Minnesota Extension, Stearns & Benton Counties. This article will help in your selecting the best crab tree.
