Mountain Apple, whether the ‘Red’ or ‘White’ variety, are delicious fresh eating fruits and grown easily in most backyards. The trees can get large and produce abundant fruit several times a year. The ‘Red’ variety is easier to market as it does not show blemishes to the skin. The ‘White’ variety will turn slightly pink if left on the tree until fully ripe. The flowers appear directly on the trunk and branches and soon fall, carpeting the ground a beautiful crimson red or snow white.
