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.

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.

Pink Lady tree coming along well. Started off slowly when
planted in February, but since then, the branches are growing well, and the buds have engulfed the entire tree. The root tree is now more than 6 feet high, and new branches appear like overnight. I am pleased so far.

Planting & Care



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


Pink Lady® Apple Tree (Low-Chill) Planting Diretions

The Pink Lady apple tree (Malus domestica ‘Pink Lady’) is a compact apple tree, reaching an overall height of 15-20 feet tall and 8-10 feet wide. This low chill variety is not as cold tolerant as other varieties, only tolerating temperatures down to 0 degrees. This particular apple tree does best in USDA growing zones 6-9 and only requires 200-400 chill hours in order to properly produce fruit. One of the harvest season’s later producing trees, these make great apples for baking, adding a fresh touch to your holiday dessert dishes.

Location: Be sure that the location you plan to plant your tree will receive full sun which means at least six hours of direct sun each day. If the area receives more than half a day’s shade then the tree will not perform well. Drainage is essential so if you have an overabundance of clay, some soil amending may be required. The pH range of the soil (for the best results) is 6.0-6.5 and a soil test can determine this easily. Testing kits can be found at your local gardening center to test the acidity of your soil. If the soil is mostly sand then amending peat moss into the sand will help with moisture retention otherwise more frequent irrigation will be needed.

Planting Directions (in ground): Now that you have found your ideal planting location for the Pink Lady apple there are some basic steps for planting the tree. You can raise the acidity of the soil if necessary using lime or wood ash. To lower the pH you can amend sulfur, sphagnum peat or aluminum/iron sulfate into the soil.

1) Make your planting site hole twice the width of the root ball and just as deep.
2) Gently comb your hands over the root ball to free up the roots before planting. Take care not to be to rough with the roots.
3) Place your new Pink Lady apple tree in the hole and be sure it’s straight as you begin to back fill the hole. Tamp down the soil as you fill the hole to prevent air pockets from forming.
4) Water the planting site to settle the soil and then mulch around the base to prevent competing weeds and grasses from growing around the area.
*Tip: Make sure your mulch is not touching the base of the trunk as this can encourage rot and fungus from forming.

Planting Directions (potted tree): Most wouldn’t think you cannot grow an apple tree that isn’t a dwarf variety in a pot. With the Pink Lady apple you can definitely grow a happy, healthy apple tree in a pot! Growing this way will also help maintain the tree at a more manageable height.

1) You will want to start off with a fairly large pot for the apple tree to have enough space to stretch out its root system. A ten gallon or even a fifteen gallon pot will be a good size to start with. Plastic pots may not be a good selection as they can get hot in the sun and aren’t insulated against the cold.
2) Select a well draining, quality potting soil mix to fill the pot.
3) Some light trimming of the roots is encouraged before potting the tree to prevent it from becoming a root bound mess in the pot. Snip the roots so they are about ½ inch from the inside wall of the pot.
4) Be sure you add enough soil to the bottom of the pot so the graft union will be level with the rim of the pot. Fill the pot until there is about a 2 inch space from the rim to the top of the soil.

Watering (in ground): Your Pink Lady apple will benefit from a regular watering habit each week. You may need to water more often in times of extreme heat or drought. The soil surrounding your tree should be moist, but never saturated. Light green leaves can be a sign of over watering, while drooping leaves can be a sign of both over or under watering.

Watering (potted): Water slowly when you irrigate the tree to ensure even moisturizing of the soil. When the tree is in a dormant state, only provide enough water to keep the soil slightly moistened. As soon as you see newer growth coming out of the tree you can water whenever the top 2 inches of the soil feels dry.

Pruning (in ground): Once your tree has become established and is starting to bear fruit, it will need some periodic, moderate pruning. Only prune the tree during times of dormancy making sure to remove any vigorous, upright stems which are quite common in the upper portion of the tree. Weak, damaged or dead branches should also be removed. Low hanging, droopy branches should also be removed. As a branch declines with age it should be cutback to let younger branches take over and produce better.

Pruning (potted): Once you have your tree potted and comfortable, prune the branches back to about ⅓ of their length. This will assist the tree in compensating the reduction in the roots trimmed to fit the pot. Trim off any intersecting, damaged, dead, or diseased looking periodically. This should be done in the summer and late winter seasons.

Fertilizing (in ground): An annual fertilizing with a balanced 10-10-10 formula will be sufficient for your Pink Lady apple. If your soil is naturally fertile then do not feed (fertilize) the tree until it has reached two years old. Be sure to only apply the fertilizer in the warmer seasons. Be sure to follow the application instructions on the fertilizer to ensure you don’t burn the roots or overdo it.

Fertilizing (potted): While the potted Pink Lady apple tree is still young, feed it a ½ strength, balanced liquid fertilizer every 2 weeks while in the growing season. When the tree gets a bit older you can start using fruit fertilizers. Reduce the feedings for your apple tree in the late fall season and avid fertilizing at all in the winter season.

Harvesting: As the apples near their final stages of ripening they should be picked once they reach the correct size and color. Even if the fruit is removed while just under ripened it can be picked and ripened in the refrigerator.


Pollination chart for Pink Lady Apple: If there happens to be a crab apple tree nearby then you may not need a cross pollinator for your apples to grow. Crab apple trees are “universal pollinators” for apple trees but the other specific apple trees listed below will work as a cross pollinator for your tree.

We bought some Pink Lady apples from a local orchard and they were great for pies
Doug J on Nov 24, 2017
Our oldest son has never liked apples, until he tried this one last fall at an orchard. Our whole family LOVES them now, so we knew we wanted this apple tree in our new backyard. Looking forward to the beauty of the tree in the spring as well as the incredible sweet flavor in the fall.

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!

Mary S on Jan 9, 2016
