Perhaps more than any other modern apple, Pink Lady epitomises the trend towards product marketing and branding in the sale of apples. Pink Lady was one of the first apples to be marketed under a specific brand name rather than by its variety name. Pink Lady or otherwise known as Cripps Pink was developed in the 1970s by John Cripps in Western Australia and is a cross between Golden Delicious and Lady Williams.
Lady Williams is not a particularly well-known apple variety in Europe or North America but has been quite widely grown in Australia, having been discovered as a chance seedling in the 1930s. It is probably from Lady Williams that Pink Lady gets its distinct colouring.
