Cripps Pink is an attractive modern apple variety from Australia. Its distinctive pink/red color and pleasant flavour make it an interesting variety for the gardener or home orchardist. The blossom is also very attractive.
The apples ripen in late October or early November, and can be stored in a fridge for several months.
Although normally considered a variety for eating fresh, Cripps Pink is a good stewing apple - the dense chewy flesh softens nicely with cooking. It also produces a good plain apple juice with a primarily sweet flavour.
Next deliveries: December 2023 - February 2024.

If you do not hear from us by March you can contact us to pre-order for next autumn.
Cripps Pink was raised in Western Australia - so it is perhaps not surprising it does best in areas with long hot summers and sunny autumn weather. Cripps Pink also has a low winter-chill requirement, and retains its leaves well into the winter - a characteristic usually associated with tropical rather than temperate trees.
