Scrumptious is a new early English variety with rosy red peel and white crisp flesh. Reminiscent of Discovery, but with greater levels of sweetness and crispness, this is a great addition to the range of early-season options. The variety has received the Award of Garden Merit, which is very unusual for an apple variety.
