Espalier or fan trees are used against a wall; you will need not less than 180 x 180cm’s for a fan or espalier tree. Please note we do not supply ready trained trees; this Scrumptious is a young tree suitable for training yourself, in situ. Such trees usually settle to cropping within 2 or 3 seasons.
Scrumptious is 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.
