Beauty, Fragrance and Superior Taste

Pink Lady Apple trees, Malus domestica 'Pink Lady', have a distinctive fuchsia blush that dominates the yellow background of this superbly-beautiful apple.  Clothed in this magnificent coloring, Pink Lady invariably creates a head-turning affect when it’s ripe for harvest. 

These medium/large apples are firm and aromatic, with what some say is a fragrance of pear or cider.  When you approach the tree you’ll be astonished by their beauty, but that’s nothing compared to what you’ll experience when you actually reach out and pick one. 

Biting into the yellow-tinted, white flesh will create a flavor explosion.  Crisp and juicy, Pink Lady’s flavor is that of an apple, but with a distinctive taste of melon and just a hint of citrus.  A subtle dash of tartness gives it just enough zing to tantalize your taste buds and make you yearn for the next bite. 

One of the best features of your Pink Lady Apple tree is that although delicious right off the tree, it actually improves in flavor after about four weeks in storage (and its storage life is very long). 

Pink Lady Apple trees will grow up to 20 feet in height with a 15-foot spread.  Its adorable pink-accented, white flowers in spring are fragrant, long-lasting, and certain to draw pollinators to your yard.  The fruit ripens in October/November, extending your joy of harvest time when other fruits have completed their season.   

With so many varieties of apple on the market today, it can be difficult to know which ones to grow.  Pink Lady Apple trees offers not only superior flavor, but great storage so you can enjoy your delectable fruit for longer.  Add in the fragrance and beauty of this variety, and you can see why Pink Lady is a good choice in an apple tree for your home.

Gorgeous, Delicious Pink Apple

The Pink Lady Apple® may be the most well marketed apple in worldwide history. What other apple can boast its own website at pinkladyapples.com, or its own Twitter account at @pinkladyapples.co.uk? What other apple won an award in 2011 for the best marketed brand by the Chartered Institute of Marketing?

Since its introduction - first in Australia in 1989 and then to the US in the late 1990's, the Pink Lady® has become one of the most popular commercial varieties sold worldwide.

The Pink Lady was first crossed by John Cripps, a hybridizer for the Western Australia Department of Agriculture, in 1973. The Cripps Pink, as it was originally called, was a cross between Lady Williams and Yellow Delicious. To acknowledge his contribution, John Crips was made an Officer of the Order of Australia for distinguished service to his industry.

The Australian government works with the Apple and Pear Australia Limited (APAL) who owns the name and all intellectual property associated with the name Pink Lady Apple®. Producers who grow and market the Pink Lady Apple® must agree to sell only when and if the fruit achieves specific sugar content, firmness, blemish free fruit and a pink (not light red) color. Inspections are made regularly by agents of APAL to ensure that these standards were met.

Brandt's Fruit trees of Washington State bought the trademark rights for the United States and Mexico in the late 1990's. Brandt's formed a company called Pink Lady America to manage the Pink Lady Brand in these countries.

This required the trees fruit to be exposed to the sun during the later part of the ripening period. This meant for some late season pruning for the finest pink color to be achieved.

Never a cheap apple; today the Pink Lady® is the third or fourth most popular variety of apple sold worldwide. This is purely do to its fine quality. Since it has been released to the home garden market, it is continually grown as one of the most popular varieties sought out for planting in the backyard.
