Malus 'Neville Copeman' is known for its beautiful green leaves which are tinged with purple throughout the summer. In April and May, it offers lovely deep pink-purple flowers which are followed by heavy bunches of conical shaped orange to red coloured fruit. The fruit is rather sour if eaten straight off the tree but can be used to make delicious stewed fruit desserts when honey or sugar is added. The crab apples are also great for making jam and the high levels of pectin help with the setting process.
The boldly coloured fruits remain on the tree well into winter long after the leaves have fallen. This makes a wonderful sight in an otherwise bare garden. Birds, bees and other wildlife are attracted to the fruits, bringing movement and sound into your garden in the dull winter months. These pollinators also aid in pollinating other fruit trees which you have planted nearby, ensuring a steady supply of crops.
Malus ‘Neville Copeman’ is a fully hardy tree and does best in fertile, well drained soil. It requires little maintenance. Plant in full sun or partial shade for best results. This tree is pollution tolerant, making it ideal for in-city gardens near to a busy road where car fumes are at high levels. Your tree will reach a height of 5m and a spread of 4m in a 20 year period.
