Evereste crabapple | M27 [SPRING]
Enjoy this fantastic edible ornamental throughout the year. Each spring, this highly disease-resistant tree from France is covered from base to top 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 fruit hangs on the branches until mid winter, so the birds can eat what you don't.
Of the many varieties of disease-resistant crabapples, Evereste was the most resistant, easiest to care for and most beautiful.
Raintree has made an agreement with the INRA breeding program in Angers, France, and we have introduced this beauty to the U.S. Royalties for the registered varieties go to support Western Washington Fruit Research. On EMLA 27 rootstock. Perfect to grow in a pot, it will only grow about four feet tall.
