The Malus domestica ‘Scrumptious’ is a mid-season dessert apple that is red with an intricate, aromatic, honeyed flavour. Scrumptious is a self-fertile, disease resistant, good pollinator and produces heavy crops of red apples, even on young trees.
Apple are one of the easier fruit trees to grow and are increasingly becoming more popular with gardeners. They are medium sized deciduous trees with flashy Spring flowers and ornamental or edible fruit in the Autumn.
Scrumptious does not require a pollination partner to produce a good crop of fruit as it is self-fertile. Apple trees benefit from growing in slightly sheltered, sunny area, as the blossom will attract a large variety of pollinators as well as the sun will help ripen the fruit.
They store for a particularly short time after they have been picked compared to some other apple trees, they will keep for roughly one or two weeks at most.
The Malus domestica ‘Scrumptious’ was introduced in 1980 by Hugh Erman in Kent, this man is also responsible for breeding other popular varieties such as Red Devil and Hertfordshire Russet. The parents of Scrumptious are Golden Delicious and Discovery.
