Geneva Crab is a large-fruited crab-apple with a dark crimson skin and marbled pink flesh. It is primarily grown for its sharp-flavored juice, which imparts an attractive rose pink color to cider blends.
The leaves have a prominent bronze tint (anthocynanin pigmentation), and the blossom is a dark crimson color.
Like many of red-flowered crab-apples, Geneva Crab is a poor pollinator of other apple varieties. It is however more disease-resistant and hardier than many of the red-fleshed crab-apples.

Geneva Crab was developed at Ottawa in the 1930s in collaboration with the New York Agriculture Experiment Station at Geneva, New York.
