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.

How to grow

Red Devil has been developed for the UK garden, and is one of the easiest and most reliable varieties, and seems to do well in all areas. Its excellent scab resistance makes it a good choice for areas with higher rainfall.

It is also self-fertile so no pollination partner is required.
