Yeah, I have Evereste too, it's only it's first year of fruiting but so far the Red Sentinel wins hands down. The apples are slightly smaller on the Evereste too but there is more of them. Red Lantern is a very nice tree too, both for crabs and flowers which both have a very strong scent. The crabs don't hang for very long though though. Same with John Downie. Jelly King has nice crabs and they're still hanging, and a good size, more of a pinky clolour than red. Golden Elf and Golden Hornet are lasting so far with Golden Elf having loads of smaller crabs. They are showing signs of dropping though.
MrsG Yeah, if you can see what you're getting then you can choose the best shaped tree.
