Note: at the moment Snowdrift is my favourite crabapple tree for pollenizing. At blossom time it is covered with masses of white blossoms. The bees love it. From the Snowdrift they visit my other apple blossoms.
In the Fall, on a certain day, the robins know that the crabapples are ripe and they flock to the Snowdrift crabapple trees and devour the crabapples. It takes about three days and all the Snowdrift crabapples are eaten. There is no mass of crabapples lying on the ground making a mess.
