Cripps Pink Apple

The Cripps Pink Apple is a cross between a Golden Delicious and Lady Williams apples.  John Cripps from Australia crossed the two varieties in 1973.

It’s principally grown in Australia, but is also grown in New Zealand, Chile, Canada, Argentina, South Africa, Uruguay, Brazil, Japan, Italy, Spain, France, Serbia, Israel and in the United States since the late 1990s. (wiki)

It has a distinctive blush mixed with a green “background”. The flesh is firm, crisp, effervescent, and yellow-white, with a tangy and sweet flavour.

Apples that meet certain quality standards are sold under the trade mark name Pink Lady®.

How to use Cripps Pink Apple

This apple has a great flavour and texture for eating fresh, out of hand.

The apple browns slowly after cutting so is great for salads and fruit trays.

The Cripps Pink can be cooked into sauces and pies because of its high sugar content. Last Updated: March 8, 2018
