Cripps Pink is a cultivar of apple sold under the trademark name Pink Lady.

Pink Lady apples were originally bred by British-Australian John Cripps. The horticulturalist bred them at the Western Australia Department of Agriculture.

He did so by crossing the Australian apple Lady Williams with a Golden Delicious, which is bred in the United States.

Nonetheless, Cripps Pink is owned and licensed by the Department of Agriculture and Food, Western Australia (DAFWA), which has plant breeders’ rights in multiple countries.

Apple and Pear Australia Limited (APAL), the peak industry body for Australian apple and pear growers, owns and manages within their territory the intellectual property in the Pink Lady family of trademarks, which is registered in more than 80 territories.

Pink Lady apple shape is ellipsoid and has a distinctive blush mixed with a green “background” with a taste of tart.

These apples require a long, 200-day growth period and a hot climate, making them difficult to grow in more temperate latitudes or climates subjected to early winter freezes.
