This tree is of semi-spreading growth, reaching a height of 3 to 4m in ten years and has a harmonious shape, which it keeps without the necessity of pruning. Its foliage is green. In April, 'Evereste' covers itself in bright pink flower buds, which bloom as pure white bouquets of flowers. The quality and the abundance of its pollen make it an ideal pollinator, precious for fruit growers (in proportion of 6 - 8% of all varieties of early or semi-early flowering). The cherry sized fruits are orange with thin red stripes. They apprear in autumn and have the particularity to last well into winter. 'Evereste' has also been chosen by the INRA selectors for its resistance to the major diseases such as fire blight, scab and mildew. Nearly a million plants have been sold in Europe since its creation in 1974. Its ornamental qualities, its reasonable dimensions and its easy care make it an excellent small urban tree if grown full standard; in clumps it is very valuable in the composition of flowering hedges and in shrub borders.
