Crabapple was a fanzine by Mary Reed published in the UK.

The first issue of Crabapple appeared in September 1965. The first two issues of Crabapple were distributed via OMPA, in September and December of 1965, but the third issue was distributed via PADs in their fifth mailing in 1966.

Crabapple featured the "Tribe X" and Ulf" fictional tales by reed, as well as SF quizzes, humourous quotes from the press, occasional commentary on music, and was unlike other science fiction fanzines of the era. It developed a 'sub-fandom' of its own, called "Kinkay Fandom", which included Reed, Arthur Crittenden, Dave Baldock and others. The tenth and final issue of Crabapple was released in July 1970.
