Renfrewshire, United Kingdom
Could somebody please give me advice about my crab apple tree? It's been blown sideways in the recent winds and I'm keen to pick the apples and make jelly. However, the apples are lovely and red on one side but most still creamy-white on the other. Would these make good jelly? I feel the tree is begging to be relieved of its fruit! Also, could you tell me what I should do once the fruit's gone? The tree is 2 and a half years old and about 7 ft high. I've never pruned it. Should I now? Many thanks.
