FAQs About Lady Apples

Cripps apples are another name for Pink Lady apples. Pink Lady apples are sometimes called Cripps apples because John Cripps grew the first Pink Lady apples when he crossed a Golden Delicious tree with Lady Williams. Pink Lady apples must meet specific color, sugar, and firmness standards to earn their name. If they do not meet these standards, they are sold as Cripps apples. Cripps apples are still enjoyable and often much more affordable than Pink Lady apples.

Many people assume Pink Lady and Lady Alice are two names for the same apple, but they are quite different. While both classified as Lady apples, Pink Lady apples are tarter than Lady Alice apples. Pink Lady apples also have pink-colored skin, while Lady Alice apples can be red, orange, or yellow.

Lady Williams are a less common variety that gave birth to the Pink Lady. Like the Pink Lady, Lady Williams have pink skin and crisp flesh. They are, however, a little tarter than the Pink Lady.

There is another kind of apple called simply a Lady Apple. Unlike the other varieties of Lady apple, Lady Apples have tender flesh and green and red skin. They are also much smaller than the other Lady apples, so they are mostly used for decoration. You can also cook them to bring out their sweet, yet tart, flavor.

Many people prefer organic Lady apples because they are grown without pesticides. Advocates say organic apples have a more intense taste that makes them more delicious, whether eaten raw or cooked. Organic Lady apples are usually more expensive than regular Lady apples, although they become much more affordable when the apples are in season.
