Apple

Parentage: Starkspur Golden Delicious x Discovery

Description: Scrumptious is an apple that is something very special. The most popular apple, self-fertile, tasty and easy to grow. Named for its wonderful complexity of flavours it has been carefully bred and selected specifically for our garden conditions. Scrumptious is a mid season variety suitable for planting in all areas of the UK. It is also frost hardy when in flower, thin skinned for children and can be eaten straight from the tree at any time during September. The fruit will naturally stay on the tree without falling. When tasted by apple lovers, descriptions include: fragrant and honeyed, liquorice and wine, a bunch of cherries, fresh, aromatic, soft and delicate, crisp and sweet.

History: Developed in Kent by Hugh Ermen and released in 1980. Introduced by Frank P Matthews, Worcestershire in 2000.
