Tree. It reaches a height of 12 m (usually 5-10 m). The crown is rounded, openwork (reaches more than 5.5 m in width). The shoots are naked, reddish-brown, covered with a shiny grayish film, easily erased. Young shoots are grayish-red, pubescent. The bark of adult trees is smooth, light gray-brown or yellow-gray, shiny. The buds are felt-fluffy. The terminal buds are cone-shaped, up to 18 mm long and 5 mm thick. The leaves are up to 20 cm long, alternate, unpaired, consist of 7-15 almost sessile lanceolate or elongated, pointed, toothed along the edge of the leaflets, whole-edged in the lower part and sawn in the upper part, green above, usually matte, noticeably paler, pubescent below. In autumn, the leaves are colored in golden and red tones. The flowers are five-membered, numerous, collected in dense corymbose inflorescences with a diameter of up to 10 cm; the inflorescences are located at the ends of shortened shoots. The flower is younger than the urn-like shape — a calyx of five wide-triangular ciliated sepals. The corolla is white (0.8-1.5 cm in diameter), there are five petals, many stamens, one pistil, three columns, the lower ovary. When flowering, an unpleasant smell is emitted (the reason for this is trimethylamine gas). Blooms in May-June. The fruit is a spherical juicy orange-red apple (about 1 cm across) with small rounded seeds along the edge. In the Moscow region, the fruits ripen in late August — September and hang ripe until winter. It bears fruit annually; abundantly - in 1-2 years.
