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).

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
