How did the Crab Apple get its name Most apples are delicious to eat raw. But if you've ever bitten into a crab apple, and if you know that one meaning of the word "crab" is sour, then you can easily guess how the crab apple got its name. Crab apples are small sour apples to which our common apple is related. Crab apples can be found growing wild in many parts of North America.

They are good for making delicious jellies and preserves, and the crab apple tree is often used for ornamental purposes.
