Crabapple, from the genus Malus, is a family of deciduous trees that produce some pretty fragrant flowers and tart fruit that packs a punch.  The flowers vary in color, often ranging from white to pink to red to purple, and they usually come in five-petal masses (though there are some cultivars and species that produce more blossoms).  The fruits themselves can be eaten as is, but they’re most often used for jellies, preserves, and cider.  How’s that for food for thought?
