Manchurian Siberian Apple (Malus Baccata Mandshurica) 30 seeds (#264)

Delicate and pretty with snowy white flowers in mid- to late spring, Siberian crabapple also bears showy red to yellow small fruits by late summer persisting into midwinter. This medium-sized deciduous tree is native to the mixed forests of the Himalayas northward across China and Mongolia into eastern Siberia. The bark is smooth and gray and its youngest branches are slender and curving. This tree often grows with multiple trunks.
In mid-spring the branches fill with copious amounts of light pink flower buds. The buds open to white, extremely fragrant flowers that are visited by bees for pollination. The unfurling leaves become bright medium green ovals with small teethed edges and a tapered tip. The small rounded fruits ripen in early autumn to either red or yellow, and will be eaten by hungry songbirds and small animals well into winter. In autumn leaves become a golden blend of yellow-green, and light yellow.
Grow Siberian crabapple in full to partial sun in a moist soil that has good drainage. Fertile soils will yield the most robust and fast growing specimens. A prolonged chilling is needed in winter to initiate flowering the following spring. Although a tough, versatile tree, it is not well adapted to drought or alkaline soil and is susceptible to many common crabapple diseases like scab and canker. Use this ornamental as a large flowering specimen tree in a park or spacious yard; lowermost branches may need trimming if pedestrian or vehicular traffic passes under its canopy. Use the fruits to make jams and jellies. (info source: Learn2Grow.com)

GERMINATION INSTRUCTIONS
1. Soak the seeds in water for 24 hours, to soften the outer layer.
2. Place the seeds in a damp paper towel and then fold it into quarters. Place the towel into a plastic bag and place into the refrigerator. Keep the seeds inside the refrigerator for 60 days.
3. Sow 5 mm deep in soil. After approximately 6 weeks the seeds should begin to sprout. Only about 50-60% of the seeds will germinate so plant enough!
4. Plant the sprouts into 15 cm (6") containers filled with a well draining potting soil. Select a container that drains. Be careful not to injure the root system when planting the apple seedlings. Water to keep the soil moist, but not soggy and place the container in a sunny window.
5. When the plant is six months to one year-old, plant it outside in a location situated in full-sun and with well-drained soil. Select a planting site where the tree won't be crowded and gets good air circulation. Constantly wet soils and crowded conditions leads to disease problems and possible death.
