An Apple Red as a Rose

The Daily Mail reports that the Redlove® Era® apple has arrived in Britain. The fruit trees are available for purchase in Britain, but it will be a year before the fruit hits supermarket shelves in the United States.

The apple is red on both the outside and the inside. The apple's red flesh also will not turn brown like that of other apples.

The Daily Mail says Mark Kobert, a Swiss fruit grower, spent 20 years cross-pollinating apples to come up with the Redlove. The BBC reports that the Redlove® was "created through the cross-pollination of Royal Gala ® and Braeburn® apples as well as a secret variety that has pink flesh."
