Christmas Pink (Lady)

by Wednesday, December 16, 2015

Pink Lady is the registered trade name of the fruits of varieties of Apple Cripps Pink that meet certain quality standards. The variety Cripps Pink was originally selected by John Cripps at the then Ministry of agricultureWestern Australia, hybridizing the Apple Australia Lady Williams with a Golden Delicious to combine the best characteristics of both apples. The result is an Apple at the same time sweet and crisp. One of my favorites. And if you're happy for Pink Lady addict, Here are a few recipes to try. Also for Christmas.
