Apple - Scrumptious

Excellent new early garden variety: self-fertile, disease and frost resistant. The fruits are sweet crisp and juicy and as the name suggests have a deliciously fragrant honeyed flavour. A good pollinator, succeeding throughout the UK.

Season: September - October

Planting Distance: 4m (13ft)

Approximate Height: 4m (13ft) after 10 years

Instances of poor pollination are nearly always caused by bad weather at blossom time, limiting the activity of insects.

This apple tree is growing on a semi-dwarf rootstock, ideal for the average garden.

Apples need a sunny site and a neutral soil to crop well, a pH of 6.5 - 7.5 is ideal.
