Buy Malus 'Evereste' crab apple Evereste: Makes superb crab apple jelly.

This plant is deciduous so it will lose all its leaves in autumn, then fresh new foliage appears again each spring.

  • Position: full sun or partial shade
  • Soil: fertile, well-drained soil
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Flowering period: May
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    Perhaps the best crab apple for crab apple jelly. 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 is one of the best disease resistant crab apples. It's conical in shape and will flower (and fruit) best when grown in full sun.

  • Garden care: When planting incorporate lots of well-rotted garden compost in the planting hole and stake firmly. Removed dead, diseased and crossing branches while the tree is dormant.

I would buy this tree again


This is a beautiful crab apple. The flowers in spring are a delight. The first crop of crab apples was huge for a young tree. Have made delicious liqueur from the fruits and left some for very appreciative blackbirds. Very happy with my purchase, which came superbly packed and in excellent condition.

Hi, Can I grow it in a pot?


Yes, this is a compact tree, so it can be grown in a really large pot - provided it is kept very well fed and watered.


My Malus Evereste is really flourishing and laden with fruit. However, it is by a fence between my garden and a walkway to the other houses in the row. It is now covering almost half the width of this walkway and I feel I should cut back some of the branches for the sake of my neighbours. Is this possible/ advisable and if so, when?


Hello, If you are going to cut it back or remove any of the lower branches, then the best time to do this would be in winter while the plant is dormant.
