Crabbit Apple

The crab apple tree at the end of the garden.

From the scandinavian word, scrabba, which is the fruit of the wild apple. The Scots have scrab, a dialect word for a withered tree or stump. Craobh-ubhal fhiadhain in the gaelic.

The Tree of Love. So sour, not even the birds will take the fruit.
