Scrumptious is a fairly new apple, a cross between Golden Delicious and Discovery created in 1980. The variety is diploid and self-fertile: no pollination problems. It produces attractive blossom in spring, and it is frost-resistant. The fruit ripens to develop a lovely deep red skin colour. It crops regularly, producing fruit of good size that is sweet, tasty, crisp and juicy. It is an apple best eaten from the tree, so not very good from a cold store.
