Scrumptious is an excellent modern English early dessert apple, and popular in tasting tests.
The flavor is what sets this apple apart from other early apple varieties. It's a great example of how growers are once again looking at flavor as the most important characteristic in a good apple.
Scrumptious is also an easy variety to grow, and the apples can be picked over a period of a couple of weeks rather than all at once.

Scrumptious is a good choice for the UK garden, and was developed specially for UK gardens by the English apple breeder Hugh Ermen.
Scrumptious is self-fertile apple variety, so no pollination partner is needed, and the blossom also has some resistance to frost.
To get the full red color make sure you plant in a sunny aspect.
