The Blushing Stunner from Down Under

The Pink Lady Apple is a native of Western Australia and does extraordinarily well in warm and hot climates. As an extra perk, the versatile Pink Lady also thrives in colder climates--making this beauty a cold-hardy and heat-resistant treasure.


Get ready for a show-stopping experience from mid-spring through early summer as fragrant, creamy white to pale pink blossoms appear. You'll find the air around this tree heavily perfumed from the enormous quantity of blooms it can produce.

The delicate flowers are a breathtaking contrast against the gorgeous emerald foliage, so Pink Lady Apple tempts and arouses all your senses.

In mid to late October, this tree's foliage comes alive in a fiery explosion of orange, maroon and blushing yellow-and it's officially time to harvest your Pink Lady apples! This works out perfectly for all your fall and winter holiday baking, as Pink Lady apples taste best when stored for a few weeks, and have an even longer shelf life when refrigerated.

The Pink Lady Apple is a cross between a Golden Delicious and a Lady Williams. Consequently, Pink Lady's fruit flaunts an attractive crimson blush over a base of pale greenish yellow. These are stunning in a bowl on your kitchen counter.

Pink Lady's flesh is creamy light yellow, dense and juicy. Fruit size runs medium to large with a subtle aroma of sweet pear, melon and cider. Some apple lovers swear that Pink Ladies taste like a hint of honeydew with a splash of orange.

Crisp and sweet-tart, the Pink Lady makes a tasty treat fresh off the tree or in salads, and performs equally well when sauced, baked and canned. Once you become acquainted with the Pink Lady, this delicious fruit will become your new favorite for baking apple pies, tarts and crisps.


Pink Lady® Apple Tree Pollination

Pink Lady® Apple Trees are not self-fertile. You will need to plant another apple tree to achieve fruiting. Below are the most common pollinators...
       
•  Gala Apple Tree •  Winesap Apple Tree
•  Fuji Apple Tree •  McIntosh Apple Tree
•  Yellow Delicious Apple Tree •  Honeycrisp Apple Tree
•  Granny Smith Apple Tree •  Red Delicious Apple Tree
   
Crab Apple Trees also make some of the best pollinators for Fruiting Apple Trees. Because they bloom for a long period of time and produce an abundance of pollen that are compatible with most Fruiting Apple Tree varieties.

For more information on apple pollination, view our Apple Pollination Guide.

nice quality tree
I purchased the pink lady apple tree and was a little worried what it would look like when I received it after shipping. I was very happy to see it perk right up after following the instructions sent with the tree to prepare for planting. I am looking forward to the apples to come.

Planting & Care



It's Easy to Plant & Care for Your Pink Lady® Apple Tree (Low-Chill)



Step 1: Dig Your Hole


Select a site with full to partial sun and moist or well drained soil for your Pink Lady® Apple Tree (Low-Chill).

First, dig each hole so that it is just shallower than the root ball and at least twice the width.

Then loosen the soil in the planting hole so the roots can easily break through.

Use your shovel or try dragging the points of a pitch fork along the sides and bottom of the hole.



Step 2: Place Your Plant


Next, separate the roots of your Pink Lady® Apple Tree (Low-Chill) gently with your fingers and position them downward in the hole.

The top of the root flare, where the roots end and the trunk begins, should be about an inch above the surrounding soil.

Then make sure the plant is exactly vertical in the hole.

To make it just right, use a level.

Step 3: Backfill Your Hole


As you backfill the hole, apply water to remove air pockets.

Remove debris like stones and grass and completely break up any dirt clumps.

Water your Pink Lady® Apple Tree (Low-Chill) again after the transplant is complete.

How do I pollinate this tree? Do I have to have two of them?
Jusitn S on Aug 13, 2014
Best Answer: I don't really know. I did research on it and some web sites said you had to have another type of apple tree (not Pink Lady) for pollination and others said they didn't need another apple tree at all. I bought a Fuji and a Pink Lady. I planted my trees last spring and the Pink Lady had apples this spring/summer. They were small and we pinched them off so the tree could focus on continued root development and growth rather than on the fruit. The Fuji didn't grow any fruit this year but had lots of blossoms. I wish I could be of more assistance but I really don't know if the Fuji assisted in the pollination of the Pink Lady or not.

does it need another apple tree to cross pollinate?
deena v on Jun 29, 2015
Best Answer: Yes, they do. Fast Growing trees has a chart on the website that shows the best cross pollinators. Also, I have read that Crab Apple trees cross pollinate most apple trees. Hope this helps.

best time of year to plant pink lady apple trees?
marti f on Oct 14, 2014
Best Answer: I will be planting my pink lady in the ground after the first frost here in East Texas - probably in November. Don't know if that is the best time, but planting trees in fall/winter is pretty much the standard here since the trees are supposedly dormant at that time of year.

Do both trees cross-pollinating each other bear fruit?
Amy H on Apr 25, 2016
Best Answer: A pink lady Apple tree is not compatible with its own pollen. It needs to have another, different Apple tree that is within the same pollinating group as the pink lady. I would recommend a Fuji Apple tree. I have one and the pink lady and Fuji are growing at almost the exact same rate. This will ensure a productive Apple season for you.

Will it with stand a Texas type heat?
Linda on Apr 2, 2016
Best Answer: I live in the Dallas area, and I bought 6 fruit trees last year. They are all doing great! Two of them were apple trees. I can't remember which variety, but it doesn't matter as long as it says that these grow in your growing zone, then it will be fine. I was told by several people that Apple trees won't grow in my area, that is true of some varieties that's why it's important to make sure the trees are for your zone. One of my apple trees actually produced apples last year (the first year). I had to cut the apples off though because it looked like the weight of them was going to break the branches. I'm excited to see them produce this year!

When do I fertilizer this tree?
Mary S on Jan 9, 2016
Best Answer: I read that the best time is once a year in Spring with a nitrogen fertilizer when the flowers begin. I plan to use the fertilizer spikes for fruit trees that you hammer into the ground around the perimeter of the limb spread ( drip line). Good luck!

Will trees and shrubs look like the photographs?


Most trees and plants on the website are pictured in their mature form. Depending on the product and growth rate, mature development can take years for your plant to resemble the photos. Picture the last time you took a walk in the woods. The young trees were not miniature bonsai versions of mature trees. Instead they were naturally thin and lanky. Young trees are programmed to race toward the light, before the competing vegetation crowds them out. Once established at 10 feet or more, they start developing a wide canopy and shedding lower limbs.


Trimming & Pruning

Most Trees and Shrubs are Pruned Before Shipping... at No Cost to You!


Pruning makes plants appear to be less-full than the ones you may have seen at your local big box garden center. A retailer's goal is to have plants look their best while sitting in the store. Our goal is to have them look the best after you plant them.

Pruned trees and shrubs not only travel better, but become established much quicker. So rather than supporting extra foliage, they put their energy into sending out deep roots. Once that happens, your plants become hardier and quickly explode with new top growth. Above the ground, pruning helps your plants develop a more attractive form.
