Pink Lady Apple Tree (Cripps Pink Variety)
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.
