Perhaps the best crab apple from which to make jelly, 'Evereste' bears masses of cup-shaped, white flowers from red buds in late spring, followed by large, red-flushed, orange-yellow fruit, and dark green leaves. This pollution tolerant crab apple is an ideal ornamental tree for a small, urban garden. Also, it's one of the best disease resistant crab apples, it is conical in shape, and it will flower (and fruit) best when grown in full sun. It will eventually grow into a medium-sized tree, though not to the height expected of a single-stemmed form.
- Garden care: Plant 'Evereste' as soon as conditions allow (avoiding frozen and waterlogged soil). Choose a sheltered spot to protect emerging blossom. Incorporate lots of well-rotted garden compost in the planting hole and stake firmly. Remove dead, diseased and crossing branches while the tree is dormant.
