Crabapples multiply

Crabapples in the shade

While the apple trees I planted this year are still establishing themselves, the crabapple that inspired me is fruiting. Several handfuls worth. I guess keeping the weeds off the tree work. The crapapples look like big, hard cherries hanging in their clusters. Thing is, since crabapples are so tart, how do I know when they’re ripe?
