Scotch Dumpling apple tree
This is a little known heirloom heritage variety, but really rather good. The pretty pink blushed fruits and notably attractive blossoms are extra attributes. The tree is very frost hardy and the flavour from the early culinary fruits is amongst the best of all. Well worth growing.
