It started twenty years ago with one man's dream and now Markus Kobelt has turned it into a reality. Taking sweet and firm, disease resistant apple 'parents', with years of meticulous cross pollination and selection, he has created this uniqe and exquisite tasting red-fleshed variety that will thrive in the UK climate!
Redlove® boasts long-lasting and unusual deep pink blossom, and unique fruit that is dark red, both outside and inside, revealing a beautiful pattern when you slice through it. The juicy, fragrant flesh has a texture that can be likened to a Cox, but with an extra range of subtle cherry fruit flavours. A delicious eater, it is also ideal for cooking (it retains its red colour). Try it in fruit salads (it doesn't turn brown), pies, puddings and tarts. Or simply enjoy a glass of mouth-watering freshly squeezed juice! Though not self-fertile, it's easily pollinated by other apple trees, even up to 300m away.
