The Pumpkin Crab

I discovered a crabapple growing along the chicken yard fence. This is the first year it's bore fruit.  It has a different shape than any crab I've seen and I've christened it the Pumpkin Crab.

It's a beautiful little crab with it's combination of bright red and yellow and the ribbed shape reminds me of a pumpkin. I plan on grafting a few scions of it to spread round the homestead for the wildlife and for it's ornamental beauty.
