mystery tree

Asked May 29, 2019, 11:17 AM EDT

Hello - my daughter lives in Walla Walla and they have two of these trees. She'd like to know what they are, and if the fruits are edible or useful in some other way. Thanks very much.

Hello, The tree looks like an ornamental flowering crab apple tree. There is a popular variety called 'Almey' that it resembles. To verify, you can collect a sample and take it to your local MG office for identification: https://extension.wsu.edu/wallawalla/gardening/mg/

Thank you so much!
