Do native crabapples produce better in the south than non native crabapples?

Thanks

I have a couple southern crabapple and lots of small fruited crabapple trees. Only the southern crabapples falls off the tree and the deer eat them. The small crabapples hang on the tree and the deer leave them alone. I guess I'm saying avoid small apple crabapple trees if my experience typical. I like native trees generally because I think they would be suited to our state.

I don't know which version I have in my front yard, but it drops crab apples like CRAZY in the fall. It's inside of one of those circular flower beds rimmed with stone, and there are always about 50-60 shoots of trees trying to grow out of it.

I'd say the size of these crab apples is on about the size of a ping pong ball (maybe 75% the size of a golf ball?). Does that sound about right for the southern variety?

I was trying to convince one of my co-workers to take a bucket of the apples last year to plant on his new property, but he didn't want to mess with trying to plant them. I have no idea what sort of germination requirements there are for those guys. It might be better to just buy saplings.

Sounds like a Dolgo or even Callaway ornamental. They are great for deer as well.
