Apple Pink Lady 1kg Certified Organic and sourced locally where possible. Pink Lady apples have always been appreciated for their distinct crunchy texture and discernible tart taste with a sweet finish. The white flesh is juicy and crisp offering a “buzz” of flavour. The skin is a vivid green covered in a pinkish blush. Due to the process of growing and tree pruning, where the apple was exposed to more sun the apple becomes a deeper shade of red covering the elongated and asymmetrical shape. The origin of the Pink Lady brand refers to the highest quality apples from the Cripps Pink variety. It was through growers in Western Australia that a cross between the Golden Delicious and Lady William varieties yielded the much-loved Pink Lady. Whether its straight out of the fruit bowl or baked into an awesome dessert, the crisp apples retain their shape when baked in pies, tarts, and pancakes or poached in wine paired with cinnamon, nutmeg or vanilla. For the foodie, one of the reasons why Pink Lady is good for cheese boards, sandwiches and salads is because the flesh of the Pink Lady apples is slow to oxidize when cut. For the chef preparing applesauce and purees the perfectly sweet-tart apples lend additional flavour. To get their distinct colouring and to allow complete growth, Pink Lady apples are grown under very specific conditions, using a very specific process. This includes branch thinning, long growth cycle of 200 days and progressive harvest from the bottom branches upwards to maximise the amount of sunshine. It is this extra time Pink Lady apples spend in the sun and natural elements that supercharges this premium fruit to develop the true pink colour, sweeter crunch and uplifting buzz.
