They are on the small end of large, tapered and conical. Ribbing is subtle and the calyx is recessed so that the apple teeters on a ring around the base.
"Teeters" because many of these are oddly lopsided. The calyx is wide open, stamens akimbo.
Devine's blush is a streaky red over yellow, including some very dark streaks. Tan lenticels are in some places large and widely spaced and in others many and tiny. The stem well is deep and shows some russetting.
The Divine flesh is a medium-fine-grained yellow, firm and crunchy but a bit yielding (more on that below). It is corn-syrup sweet but not cloying.
The flavors are interesting and include a delicate hint of mint and cocoa at the start of the chew. There's corn syrup, a little nectarine, and some floral notes.
It sounds strange, but Devine's flesh is at once crisp and chewy. The apple's marketing boffins have promulgated the unlovely phrase "cottony crisp" to describe this quality
I find this both unfortunate (who's for a mouth full of cotton?) and oddly apt. The texture in person is not at all unpleasant.
This apple is worth a bite if only for its unusual flavor set.
Devine is not to be confused with an American variety of the same name. The true name is Delfloki. It's a disease-resistant variety developed in the oughts at Delbard Nurseries in France. Here's the Devine pedigree:
Golden Delicious x Grive Rouge, crossed with Florina
Origin aside, I bought these here in New England.
