Cripps Pink Lady Apple Tree

Well adapted to Zone 8.

One of the finest late apples; fruit is medium to large with a sweet-tart flavor and long storage life. Best flavor develops after four weeks in storage. Because of its low chill requirement and naturally high vigor, Cripps Pink Lady is well adapted to the warm climate across the South. It is so vigorous that it does well even in poor soils and shouldn't be over-fertilized. Good for fresh eating or cooking. Late maturity— mid November. Zones 6–8, one of the best for Zone 8.

Why buy a Deluxe package - Deluxe fruit trees include 2 oz. Quik-Cal Pelletized Calcium to enhance fruit quality, 12 oz. bag of Fruit Tree Food Starter Formula, easy-to-use tree ties, a premium tree guard to protect the trunk from gnawing pests, mowers and weed trimmers, and a copy of Backyard Horticulture for Fun and Profit—How to Make $10,000 in Your Spare Time.
