Formerly known simply as M. 'Golden Hornet', this well-known crab apple is a popular choice for gardens where its neat tapering shape and huge crops of conspicuous yellow fruits have made it a favourite. It is also widely planted among fruiting apple trees because its lavish display of white flowers is a prolific source of pollen for fertilising the other trees. One of the best of all crabs, its branches bend under the weight of fruit, which can be used for culinary purposes or may be left on to last all autumn and part of the winter too. The Royal Horticultural Society has given it their prestigious Award of Garden Merit (AGM).
