The Pink Lady® Brand Apple was developed over 30 years ago in Western Australia by John Cripps as a natural cross between Lady Williams and Golden Delicious. The first apple with a trademark, it has since become an international favorite and well established in thousands of retail food stores in many regions including North America. With over three million boxes grown in Washington State and around 150,000 grown in California, it is the only truly pink apple in the supermarket. Available from early December through September, it also has a distinctive sweet/tart flavor. It is excellent eaten out of hand, a great cooking apple, and is considered to be one of the best apples for slices. When buying this apple, only purchase those with the Pink Lady® Trademark on the Price Look Up (PLU) sticker which means it was packed to specific quality standards.
