  • Harvest: October 15 - November 10

  • Personality: Very crisp, sweet-tart, distinct flavor.
  • Facts of note: Dave Wilson's Taste Test Top Scorer Low chill hours, good choice for milder climates. Hot climate apple from Western Australia, in fact hot climates produce the best Pink Lady apples. Very susceptible to fireblight. Strict quality controls are exercised on this apple, those that do not meet the standard are sold as Cripp's Pink. Cripp's Pink is the same variety. The initial crops of this tree are inferior to its later production. Give it a few years to get the best quality.
  • Pollination: Self-Fruitful.

Apples are generally late blooming. Need full sun, well-drained soil, and moderate fertility. Thin fruit to maximize quality and size. Susceptible to codling moth, apple scab, powdery mildew, and gophers. Generally self-fertile, which means that the variety is pollinated by itself, or by a different variety of the same fruit. Three or more varieties are best. Harvest 4-5th year.
