Scrumptious apple


A recent variety of apple which is excellent for eating. It is a bright red apple with white, juicy flesh, crisp and with a flavour reminiscent of honey. It is a frost-resistant self-pollinator. It was raised some time around 1985 by Mr H Ermen of Faversham in Kent as a cross between Starkspur Golden Delicious and Discovery and introduced commercially in 2000 by FW Matthews Nursery in Tenbury Wells in Worcestershire. This early-season apple is harvested from mid-August to mid-September in South-East England and can be stored until November.
