Exquisitely coloured purple fruitlet of crab apple Neville Copeland (Copeman)

In passing through my orchard, this particular variety caught my eye. It has vivid purple fruitlets, that show up against the green of the leaves. Very often grown as a pollinator, as it has a very wide flowering period.

The purple fruitlets change colour throughout the year, and do not stay purple.

I think my record of the variety being Neville Copeland, I think it should be called Neville Copeman.
