Malus Evereste Crab Apple Tree
A rather beautiful tree for any sized garden, Malus Evereste is a deciduous Crab Apple variety with a conical, columnar shape and lovely blossom in Springtime. 'Evereste' is very easy to grow and so accommodating, it will thrive in any aspect. Grows well in partial shade and full sun, in a sheltered or exposed position. This variety of flowering Crab Apple is the perfect size and shape for town or courtyard gardens as it will not dominate a small garden space and is pollution tolerant.
Its compact shape and neat appearance combined with the glorious blossom and fruits make this a must have variety. Indeed, the Malus Evereste Crab Apple has been awarded the RHS Award of Garden Merit.
The pretty flowers clothe the entire tree in Springtime – a cloudy haze of pinkish buds and white blossom. Followed almost immediately by the fabulous edible Crab apple fruits, orange and deep red in colour and about an inch in diameter. Malus Evereste Crab apples have a variety of culinary uses, for Crab Apple jelly and Crab Apple wine. Apple dessert recipes that need the sharp apple taste of orange pippin varieties can be made using 'Evereste' crab apples. When left on the tree for decoration, the fruits will add glorious colour to the branches well into the winter and can be a valuable source of food for over wintering birds. During Autumn months the bronzy leaves hang beautifully with the mass of red fruits.
Malus Evereste will at maturity, reach a height of 7m and these versatile trees can be used as both specimen trees and ornamental trees. For above fence or wall hedging, consider alternating or using a mix of Malus Evereste and Hornbeam trees – they work incredibly well together.
