As long as they have a big enough apple and drop off the tree, deer will eat most any. The problem with many of the seedling crabs is you won't know for quite a few years what you will get regardless of what the nursery shows in their photos. Is it a 3/4" crab that drops on August 15, a pea size crab that holds all winter long, or a 1.5" crab that drops in October or November. If you have enough room, you can plant a variety of seedling crabs and assume some will a deer magnet. Or with grafted trees, you can choose the apples or crabapples you think fit best and put them in the location you want.
