Red Devil is, as the name suggests, a bright red apple. The red color is usually solid with no other colors present, and it can become very intense and crimson when it is fully ripe.
Red Devil has an unusual feature in that the red skin bleeds slightly into the flesh, producing an interesting staining effect in the flesh just below the skin.
The flavor is fairly well balanced between sweet and sharp, and there is a sometimes a slight strawberry element to it. Red Devil produces a very attractive pink juice, and this alone is a good reason for growing it.

Red Devil has been developed for the UK garden, and is one of the easiest and most reliable varieties.
It is also self-fertile so no pollination partner is required. It is easy to grow, and has some disease resistance.
Developed by Hugh Ermen, Kent, UK, 1979. Related to Discovery.
