Removing Fruit -- Crabapple

By The Old House Web
Unwanted fruit can be removed by:

1. Handpicking;

2. Vigorously shake the tree when fruit are small;

3. A mixture of three (3) tablespoons of Sevin (carbaryl) insecticide per gallon of water and applied within twenty to twenty-five (20 to 25) days of petal fall. Avoid spraying when petals are still present as Sevin is toxic to bees.
