This Scrumptious apple tree is grown on miniature M27 stock. M27 is a rootstock that produces the smallest tree of all; maturing to around 180cm’s in height and width, this tree is ideal for a container or small garden, courtyard or allotment. It should be staked if in a windy or open position. Crops can exceed 20ibs per tree when established and this rootstock is quite precocious, often yielding the year following planting.
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.
