Growing Calendar for Apple Scrumptious - Apple Tree
Delivery: Early November to Late April
Apple Scrumptious is a brilliant modern English early dessert apple, it has very quickly established itself as one of the very most successful garden apple varieties from recent times.
Scrumptious has a very sweet flavour when planted in a sunny position, its flavour is what sets it apart from any other early apple varieties. This apple is an excellent example of how apple growers are looking into great flavour as one of the most important factors in a delicious apple.
Scrumptious is one of the most reliable early varieties of apple available, the apples can be picked over a period of 2 weeks instead of just all at once like most apple varieties. This is the apple for you if you want a high-quality and early-season apple which is really productive and also very easy to grow.
Scrumptious is a very special apple variety and is named very appropriately due to the wonderful complex combination of delicious flavours. This apple we specially bred for growing in the conditions of the UK, this fantastic variety is self-fertile, frost hardy even when flowering and also disease resistant.
The fruit is thin skinned, aromatic and can be eaten straight from the tree throughout September but, if you can resist picking them all at once, it will stay naturally on the tree without falling.
