Very tasty unique apple.

This cross between Golden Delicious and Lady William apples is a very late apple to ripen...200 to 215 days. First named Cripp's Pink, then later registered as Pink Lady.

First bred in Australia, it became available commercially in the US in 1993. The yellow fruits with the distinctive pink blush show no russeting and resists browning when cut.

Somewhat suseptable to Fire Blight, but resistant to Apple Scab.
