A new arrival from Kent and so good it sells out each year. The flavour is superb, very much in the old style, complex and full of nuances. Scrumptious is also self-fertile so a valuable addition to the list of apples which can grow on their own. Highly recommended.

Complex, more-ish and unique. Sweet but with some underlying acidity, has been likened to pear drops, liquorice and cherries, but is also quite honeyed and sweet.
A dessert apple.
Cropping & Growth
Neat and freely spurring, precocious too – often yields well the first season after planting.
Scrumptious Apple Trees - Pollination: Scrumptious is itself self-fertile so does not need other trees. It is in group ‘B’ and is also an excellent pollinator for varieties in the same or adjacent groups.
