Bought this variety from the grocery store, and loved it. Was surprised to find this tree and wanted to add it to my collection.

I personally love this apple and have waited for years for it to be commercially available here in the states. It has been widely used in Peru and Columbia where we get our winter fruit and I decided that when it became available I would buy the trees and see how they would fare here in Missouri.

A friend recommended any apple with the name crispy.

I think it will taste like the pink ladies you get in the stores. They have a wonderful sweet tart flavor.

My next door neighbor has 4 apple trees in her yard that are 50- 75 feet away from where I want to plant a Pink Lady. Do I need a pollinator?
sherry on Oct 3, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Thank you for your question. That would depend upon the bloom time of her trees. If they bloom at approximately the same time as your Pink Lady, chances are good that they'll act as pollinators, especially the trees that are around 50' away.

You can find out what she has, and contact Customer Support at 800.325.4180. They can tell you if her trees will pollinate your Pink Lady for sure.
Do you have to use the recommended pollinators with this? Or can you use the Red Rome Beauty tree or the Jonathan tree?
Ashley H on May 25, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The recommended pollinators are just a short list of all the potential pollinators for this variety. Red Rome Beauty or Jon-a-Red Jonathan will also work for cross-pollination and fruit production.
I am in a "cold spot" in my zone 5 yard, but I love Cripps Pink apples. Would the colder microclimate hurt the tree, or just reduce production?
Jill R on May 15, 2016
BEST ANSWER: If you haven't already, put mulch around the trunk of the tree and that will help to keep the ground and roots warm. The sun will heat the mulch even though it feels cold outside. Your tree and apple production should be fine.

Cripps pink or Pink lady is a very good apple any way you say it
I have been a fan of this apple for a long time. It is tart, fresh, and the longer you keep it after harvest the better it gets. It's one of my favorites.

The Cripps Pink Apple tree is healthy and growing more leaves this year. It has survived well two winters and has tiny apples set from blossoms for the first time.

Since we haven't had any apples mature, yet, I can't say how they are.

Pink Lady Apple Tree
Order was received promptly and in very good condition, packaged to protect the new tree. Instructions were provided for best planting results and the tree has been in the ground for over a year and is doing very well and shaping up to be a great producer in the future.
I would definitely order additional product through Stark,

The new pink lady apple trees o purchased from stark bros were in very good shape when I received them and even bloomed that year. The following spring the trees are not getting leaves and seem to be almost dead except for a few leaves at the base. Not sure what has happened .
