A Cripps Pink, marketed as the Pink Lady® apple is a result of a natural cross made in 1973 by the Western Australia Department of Agriculture, between the varieties ‘Lady Williams’ and ‘Golden Delicious’. The resulting seedling was planted and produced its first fruit in 1979.
The fruit was an exciting breakthrough and the variety was ‘promoted’ through the breeding program. Second and third generation trees were propagated, and development of what is now known as the Pink Lady® apple began.
Born of good earth, pure water and clear skies a crisp Pink Lady® apple represents life at its natural green best.
Pink Lady® apples are allowed to linger longer on their trees to absorb more of nature’s goodness and develop their characteristic radiance and sweet refreshing taste. Packed with freshness and delivered with care, make healthy living a part of your active lifestyle with Pink Lady® – naturally!
