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.

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.
