Pink Lady Step-Over View larger

Pink Lady Step-Over

Most people will know Pink Lady because of it's popularity Australia wide. It's has fairly large fruit with excellent appearance, pink to pale red blush over a yellow background. Nicely flavoured pale yellow firm flesh. Matures very late and stores very well. Presently Australia's most famous apple: 3rd generation Australian, starting from Rokewood --> Lady Williams --> Pink Lady. Selected from a West Australian breeding program (it's a Lady Williams / Golden Delicious cross).

Important note on size. All my stepovers didnt make sufficient growth, and as such are sold as "small". In the paddock most got up to mid thigh (when in leaf!) and should do just fine. They've been discounted accordingly.

As we grow it on other rootstocks, be sure that you want it as a Step-over.

Pollination Guide

  • Pollination is far simpler than most people think. Generally, unless self fertile simply get 2 or more different varieties in the same group (eg pears) to ensure adequate pollination. A more comprehensive explanation can be found in our Pollination Guide
