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.
All pot-grown trees are suitable for planting out in the garden, some are suitable for growing in containers.
