Trees producing the first red-fleshed apples were on sale in Britain on Friday.

The Redlove, grown in Devon, southwestern England, boasts a rosy color from skin to core and was said to be richer in healthy antioxidants than other apples.

Saplings were being sold by British seeds and plants company Suttons, after a Swiss grower spent 20 years breeding the variety.

The apples were set to go on sale within five years.
