Malus x zumi 'Golden Hornet' is a vigorous, medium-sized, deciduous tree with broad oval crown, ovate, green leaves, yellow in autumn, and a profusion of fragrant, pink-white flowers, opening from pink buds and blooming in late spring. Flowers are followed by heavy crops of edible, golden-yellow fruits in autumn, persisting on bare branches in winter. Great for jellies and jams. Attractive to birds and bees. Malus x zumi 'Golden Hornet' prefers fertile, deep, loamy, moist, and well-drained soils, but tolerates many different soil types, except too wet. It thrives in full sun to partial shade. Resistant to frost and urban pollution. Low maintenance, doesn’t require much pruning. A self-fertile plant that can be used as a pollinator for other fruit trees. It can be susceptible to scab. Crab Apple ‘Golden Hornet’ is an attractive ornamental tree, perfect for informal, cottage, and urban gardens. Great as a specimen plant and suitable for growing in containers.

    Arundel Arboretum is a shrub and tree retail nursery with over 40 years of experience.

    About Us

    During this time, we have developed a large stock of trees, mature evergreen shrubs, conifers, Japanese maples, cedars and olives. What sets us apart from a generic garden center is solid unwavering focus on trees and some bigger shrubs. You will find thousands of trees, hundreds of varieties and lots of experts who are working on the nursery and more than willing to help you to choose a plant for you.

    What you will not find is hot tubs, garden furniture and plastic garden gnomes. In a nutshell, trees is what we know and trees is what we do, and only trees (and some shrubs to go with the trees).
