Silver Creek Nursery

Mindemoya Maroon Crabapple Seedling

Mindemoya Maroon Crabapple Seedling

History: Mindemoya Maroon was discovered near Mindemoya, Ontario by Wayne when he was vacationing on Manitoulin Island with his family in 2020. It was named for the location where it was found and the red flesh of the crabapple. Seeds were then taken from these crabapples and we are excited to see how they will turn out!

Why We Grow It: Always excited to try new things, we are looking forward to the first variety introduced by Silver Creek Nursery! Although these seedlings will differ from their parent in many ways, it will be a pleasant surprise once they start producing fruit. As such, these seedlings would best be used as fenceline trees or to attract wildlife.

Shipping: Every year we ship thousands of trees across Canada (except BC due to CFIA regulations). We carefully bag roots in damp sawdust, then box them and send them out via courrier. CLICK HERE to see our shipping policy.

Pick-up: We also have thousands of trees picked up from our nursery each year. The pick-up options is free, though you must wait until you have been emailed a confirmation that your order is ready to pick up, which will have further information such as hours, locations, etc. We really appreciate if you can make an appointment to pick up, then we can be as organized as possible during our busy season.
