The Pink Lady apple, also known as the Cripps Pink apple, is harvested in late October and can be found for sale from November through August each year. The pink color characteristic of Pink Lady apples is attributed to the temperatures they experience while growing in the fall. Pink Lady apples were created through a breeding program in Western Australia that crossed the Golden Delicious and Lady Williams apple varieties. They were introduced to the market in 1985.
