Pink Lady apple is a large, deliciously sweet and crisp, eating apple with a tart flavour. Great for eating fresh, straight off the tree! Fruit is a green base colour with blushes of pink all over. Great for cooking – pies, sauces, stews and even salad as it’s is slower to turn brown.
Pink ladies are also known as Cripp’s Pink, named after the man, John Cripps, who bred them- here in WA! They are a cross between a Golden Delicious and a Lady William. Did you know – These same 2 parent apples, also bred another apple and named it Sundowner :) Happy Families!!
The tree can grow to 6-8m and can be controlled for backyards by pruning so that you can reach the fruit when ripe. If you plant a few close together, this will stunt the growth of all the trees. Pink Lady fruit is a low chill variety with apples ripening late in the season.
