Scrumptious is an excellent modern English early dessert apple, and has quickly established itself as one of the most successful garden apple varieties of recent times.
The flavour is what sets this apple apart from other early apple varieties, as the apples become genuinely sweet when planted in a sunny position. It's a great example of how growers are once again looking at flavour as the most important characteristic in a good apple. Scrumptious is also one of the most reliable early varieties, and the apples can be picked over a period of a couple of weeks rather than all at once.
