Deep red

The blushes seem more saturated and intense to me this year. Above, Chestnut Crabapples cluster around Melrouge.

The crabs are sadly not good to eat this year, dry and mealy (though firm to the touch). Their uncharacteristic deep color may be a symptom of too much heat or time on the tree.

However, fiery, russet-blasted Melrouge is excellent.
