Pink Lady


Seasons/Availability:
Pink Lady™ Apples are harvested April/May and are available for only a short time from July.

Current Facts:
Because of this apple's pretty pink colour and because one of its compatible parents was the Lady Williams apple, it was only appropriate and natural to name it in honour of its contributing and flavourful parent.

Technically, its variety name is Cripps Pink Cultivar.

Description/Taste:

Highly sort after, this very popular apple is simply gorgeous in its organically grown form. Once tasted, many of our customers then seek out organic pink lady apples as their apple of choice.

We are growing our production of this variety as quickly as we can to meet demand.


Applications:
Pink Lady™ apples pair well with fresh strawberries, pineapple, kiwifruit and mango for refreshing fruit salad. Good for eating out of hand and cooking or baking, this grand apple makes tarts, pies, dumplings, cobblers, tortes and sauces. Sliced or cut apples stay white longer if put in a bowl of water with two tablespoons of lemon juice. To store, keep apples in the coldest part of the refrigerator. This apple freezes well.


Geography/History of the Pink Lady:

From the Western Australia and at first known as Cripps Pink, this apple was originally developed by J.E.L. Cripps of the Western Australian Department of Agriculture in the early 1980`s. A cross between a Lady Williams and a Golden Delicious, Pink Lady™ is a registered trademark of the Australian Apple and Pear Growers Association, Inc. Released in Australia in 1989 and introduced into the United States by way of New Zealand, Pink Lady™ apples have recently become one of the most sought-after apple varieties. Pink Lady™ is the last apple harvested. Cool Autumn nights are credited for this apple's bright pink colour, hence its name.
