Cripps Pink is a cultivar of apple. It is one of several cultivars from which apples that meet quality standards can be sold under the trademark name Pink Lady. Cripps Pink was originally bred by John Cripps at the (then named) Western Australia Department of Agriculture by crossing the Australian apple Lady Williams with a Golden Delicious to combine the firm long-storing property of Lady Williams with the sweetness and lack of storage scald of Golden Delicious.
Perfectly pink blush covers most of this apple, with some bright green and yellow around the stem. This is one of the delightfully crisp varieties, with a lovely smell and a delicious sweet-tart flavor to its white flesh. Apples are harvested at their peak, and then put into cold storage to maintain that perfect level of ripeness.
