Malus Evereste

Malus Evereste is one of the most popular crab-apple trees and a good choice if you want a medium-large flowering tree for the garden.

The plain white spring blossom is borne in great profusion - often in the first spring after planting.

The pretty small crab-apple fruitlets appear in the autumn and have an attractive flushed orange colour. They remain on the tree well into December, providing interest long after the leaves have fallen.

We may also have 1-year bare-root trees of this variety - they are not shown here.

Leaves may not be present during winter, and we may prune some shoots to fit the delivery carton. Size may vary during the season and between batches. The container (if supplied) is only used for transporting the tree, which should then be planted out in the garden or in a much larger patio planter (not all species are suitable for patio planting).

How to grow

Evereste produces lots of pollen over a long period, so is a popular choice as a pollinator of apple trees in small orchards, particularly apple varieties in flowering group 3.
