Pink Lady apples must meet strict specifications in terms of sugar content, firmness, colour and environmentally friendly production methods.
They are principally grown in Italy and extensively in Australia (my two favorite countries). The Pink Lady apple is becoming particularly popular in the United Kingdom (my next destination in Europe).
The Pink Lady apple has a distinctive pink hue mixed with a green "background," and taste is tart. The Cripps Pink variety requires a long, 200 day growth period and a hot climate, making them un-growable in more temperate latitudes.
Aaaand... Pink Lady apples do not like the cold weather, which make them just like me :)
Yup, I just posted about apples.
