Red Devil is, as the name suggests, a bright red apple. The red colour is usually solid with no other colours present, and it can become very intense and crimson when it is fully ripe. It ripens mid-season and has a sweet/sharp flavour.

An unusual feature is that the red skin bleeds slightly into the flesh, producing an interesting staining effect in the flesh just below the skin.

Red Devil is an essential variety if you like making your own apple juice. It produces a very attractive pink juice, with a good balanced tangy flavour.

Pollination guide for Red Devil

Red Devil is in flowering group 3. Red Devil is self-fertile and does not need a pollination partner, although fruiting may be improved if there is a compatible tree of a different variety nearby. Since it flowers in the middle of the blossom season it can be pollinated by most other apple trees.
