My Experience

Can you fall in love with an apple? We think so and get giddy talking about the zippy taste of Pink Lady® apples. This firm, pink-hued apple has a perfect sweet-tart flavor and effervescent finish.

Pink Lady® apples have high sugars and high acids that make them slow to oxidize, or brown, when sliced. It’s a great apple to snack on, slice on a salad, freeze, and definitely use it in any apple recipe you’re making.

My Story

From the land down under, the Pink Lady® brand Cripps Pink cultivar apple originated in 1973. Australian researcher John Cripps crossed the famous Golden Delicious with the lovely Lady Williams apple to create the beautiful and bright apple that we adoringly call Pink Lady®. In fact, Pink Lady® was the first apple with a trademark name!

Pink Lady® apples came to the U.S. in the late 1990s and is a managed variety, which means only select growers can produce it. Stemilt is proud to be one of the longest and leading growers of zippy Pink Lady® apples!

My Story

Pink Lady® brand Cripps Pink cultivar apples (usually referred to as Pink Lady or Pink Ladies) originated in 1973 after John Cripps, a researcher from Western Australia’s Department of Agriculture, crossed the Golden Delicious and Lady Williams apple varieties. The result was a vibrantly pink apple with a unique flavor. Pink Lady apples were released for commercial production in Australia in 1989 before finally making their way to the U.S. in the late 1990s. It is a trademarked variety, which means growers must obtain a license before they can use the brand name. That means only high-quality apples make it under the Pink Lady Brand name.
