Pink Lady--
Yet another import from the land "down under" this variety was originally named Cripp's Pink. Developed and bred by the agriculture department of Western Australia in 1973, Pink Lady apples are a cross between Golden Delicious and Lady Williams. Introduced to the United States by way of New Zealand in the late eighties, the fruit is medium in size and conical in shape, with a distinctive pink blush over a yellow background. The fine-grained flesh of this apple is crisp and crunchy and, because it does not brown easily after being cut, Pink Lady is a desirable addition to fresh vegetable and fruit salads. When eaten out-of-hand, the first bite tastes pleasantly tart and is followed by a delicious sweetness. Pink Lady ripens in September and can be found in most markets right through late spring months.
