When To Find Pink Lady Apples: Pink Lady has one of the longest growing periods, and while it is the first apple to bloom each spring it is the last to harvest, spending more time on the tree than any other apple. Look for Pink Lady throughout the winter months, beginning in early November.
Best Uses for Pink Lady Apples: Pink Lady is a firm apple with plenty of flavor and a cool, sweet-tart finish that makes it appropriate for either sweet or savory dishes. Its white flesh resists browning, making it a popular choice for serving with cheese, hummus, or other dippers. It holds firm when cooked and retains a beautiful, apple flavor when dehydrated or baked into chips.
How to Store Pink Lady Apples: Like other apples, store in your refrigerator's crisper for upwards of a week.
