The popular Cripps Pink apple variety was originally bred by John Cripps at the WA Department of Agriculture by crossing Lady William with Golden Delicious. It is one of the first and best known club varieties. Many sports are being patented. Cripps Pink has a sweet, crisp, delicious flavour. Cripps Pink is a medium sized round to oblong shape and can be identified by a yellowish skin overlaid with a pink to light red blush. Excellent eating out of hand.
