It can’t be often that an apple make the news but then Redlove is more than just an apple. Working with from Lubera, the Swiss nursery that developed this sensational apple, we first launched it in 2010. It soon hit the news and was featured not only by the BBC and British Press but across the world. We sold so many that we thought we’d saturated the market but how wrong we were. Customers have continued to ask for Redlove apples and so here they are, back by popular demand.
Unlike most apples, Redlove is red to the core. Some other varieties of apple also have red flesh but with a rather bitter taste. In contrast these apples taste wonderful; crisp and juicy with a berry nuance.
Perfect for British gardens, whether in the ground or in a large pot, these apple trees are easy to grow. Disease resistant with exceptionally high resistance to scab, the unusual, long-lasting, deep pink spring blossom looks attractive in the garden. The fruits are versatile in the kitchen – delicious eaten raw but also ideal for cooking, even retaining the red colour when cooked.
Dark fruits such as red grapes, blueberries and blackberries tend to be higher in antioxidants than other varieties so it’s not surprising that Redlove apples have around 13 times more antioxidants than a normal apple, putting Redlove on a par with blueberries for antioxidant content.
