    Crabapples, however, are bred for their flowers. Some varieties are sterile and do not set fruit no matter what pollen is available, but the Adams crabapple is self-fertile. Adams crabapple flowers set fruit when they are pollinated by other flowers of the same tree.
    Plant the Adams crabapple in full sun in well-drained, acidic loam soil, either as a specimen or in small groups.
