Les bébé pommes

Crabapples malus pommes hôpital Richaud Versailles
There are two places that VDP knows of where you can find crabapples in Versailles: here, cultivated espalier in the courtyard of the newly restored former royal hospital Richaud, and in the Scents Courtyard gardens... VDP loves crabapples! These photos were taken at the beginning of the month.

A la connaissance de VDP, il y a deux endroits à Versailles où l'on trouve ces mini-pommes d'ornement, les malus : ici dans le jardin de l'ancien hôpital royal Richaud, et dans l'ancien jardin des récollets, celui de la cour des senteurs. VDP les adore ! Photos prises au début du mois.

I have to confess I've never tried crabapple, I could be tempted though the ones in the first picture look delicious, they look so tiny...

I'm like Geoff. Never tried them.

I used to eat these , (and throw them at friends), as a kid. They are fairly common in my area.

You can make crab apple jam or jelly. We have a crabapple tree in the garden and the birds love them.

They are a fall treat with flavors and colors.

We used to see crabapples in Illinois where I grew up but, I don't ever see them here. I love that top photo.

Love the red and yellow together. Also love the name: baby apples.

They look wonderful. I haven't eaten a crab apple since I was a kid living in Minnesota!

The top ones look as lush as pomegranates. Very well set off by the yellow leaves.
