A pink-fleshed, pearly-skinned apple is not just a novelty, but a tart and tasty fruit with firm flesh. Blooms are deeper pink than most. Ripens early and stores well. Zones 6-10.

A beautiful apple with startling bright pink flesh and very attractive crimson-pink blossoms. Introduced in 1944 by the renowned California plant breeder, Albert Etter, Pink Pearl is a wonderful table apple which makes a beautiful and tasty pink applesauce. Fruit is medium-sized with a distinctive conical shape. The skin is creamy pale green with bright pink flesh. Flesh is crisp, fine-grained and aromatic with a delicious sweet-tart flavor. Ripens in August.
