Really bad seeds spoilt red olives (9)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

evildoers

'really bad seeds' is the definition.
(a bad seed is a bad person)

'spoilt red olives' is the wordplay.
'spoilt' indicates an anagram.
'red'+'olives'='redolives'
'redolives' anagrammed gives 'EVILDOERS'.

(Another definition for evildoers that I've seen is "People acting wickedly".)
