Red Devil Apple Tree
Red Devil (Malus domestica 'Red Devil') was introduced in 1979 and is the result of crossing the apple varieties Discovery x Kent. Apparently named after the Red Devil parachute team so if your apples start packing a chute and heading off towards a plane, you will know why.
An outstanding garden apple variety with a deep scarlet skin and red stained flesh when fully ripe making it fun apple for the kids especially. Expect the juice to be an unusual pink colour. The Red Devil apples are particularly good for juicing.
Compared to many other apple trees, the Red Devil has a higher degree of disease resistance giving you less problems in the longer term. We mean tree disease, not the Ebola virus and such like!
Expect a high yield of apples from the Red Devil, this is another one of the reasons it is a popular apple tree. As you would expect with lots of apples, before comes lots of flowers which attract the local wildlife. This is usually the flying kind, not the mobile transport, benefit claiming, read your fortune kind.
Ideal for all areas of the United Kingdom (unless you have someone like Sir Ranulph Fiennes training nearby and he is rubbing his hands together complaining he cannot feel his fingers, then you can bet it is probably not the best place to start growing apple trees)
The Red Devil Apple is considered a good choice for growing in a container. We should elaborate and say suitable container as there is bound to be someone out there that will try and grow it in a margarine tub and complain about lack of performance.
Month of Picking: Late September, store until December
Type of Apple: Eating
Self-fertile/Not self-fertile: This apple is self fertile, so there is no need for an additional apple tree to ensure pollination. This apple is in flowering period is C3 and will act as a pollination partner for other apple trees in C2,C3 or C4 flowering periods.
See What Our Customers Are Saying About Our Red Devil Apple Tree
Ordered 2 trees (Magnolia Elizabeth and Red Devil Apple), we were told that they weren’t up to scratch when picked for delivery so they advised we wait a few month for new stock. Sure enough, August rolled around and 2 weeks earlier than expected, our trees arrived. They were in great condition and looked beautiful once planted. The whole process was excellent from start to finish and it was worth a little wait for the quality we received. Will definitely be ordering again. Kind regards, Kieran 1018

My Red Devil apple tree arrived safe and sound and on time. Love your website - right up my alley. Love the product too, you clearly have style and substance. Would buy from you again if my garden wasn't already so very full. If something dies I will be in touch. ;-) All the best, Kate 1013
