Malus domestica 'Evereste'

Enjoy this fantastic edible ornamental throughout the year! Each spring, this highly disease-resistant tree from France is covered from base to summit with fragrant, beautiful, long-lasting white flowers. Every summer the tree is a spectacle in red, covered with thousands of round tart fruit about an inch in diameter. Use the fruit to make jelly, pickled apples, or add with other apples to make a wonderful cider. The tree is naturally smaller than most, with branches arched out from the weight of the fruit, which hangs until mid-winter, so the birds can eat what you don't.

Of the many dozens of varieties in the disease-resistant crab apple trials, Evereste was the most resistant, easiest to care for and the most beautiful. Raintree has made an agreement with the INRA breeding program in Angers, France. We have introduced this beauty to the U. S. Royalties for the registered variety go to support Western Washington Tree Fruit Research!

Great trees - but they are all topped before shipping.

The trees arrived as described, and established very well before our hot summer. They are healthy and vigorous. They had beautiful white blossoms in the spring and are now covered with the most beautiful ripening fruit yellow/red. I like the more subtle beauty of this variety when compared to other malus. I was disappointed that the main leader was topped on all of these trees. I plan to grow these pleached with a final height of around 8 feet. I think with proper winter and summer pruning I will get there, but there may be a kink in the trunks at 2-3 ft where the trees were all topped before shipping.
