An early maturing selection of Pink Lady (cultivar Cripps Pink) is available from Brandt’s Fruit Trees in Yakima, Washington.

The selection matures up to three weeks earlier than the standard Pink Lady. Another distinction is that while standard Cripps Pink sometimes needs to be stored for a time to balance the sugar and acid levels, early Pink Lady is ready to market at harvest. However, it has the same flavor, texture, and distinctive pink color as the original, Lynnell Brandt, president of the nursery, said in a press release published by The Good Fruit Grower magazine.
