The typically misshapen Pink Pearl is wrapped in a pale, dull yellowish-brown skin with a slight pearl blush. Revealing a crisp pink interior, the flavor is sweetly-tart.
The Pink Pearl apple is available from Windrose Farms from late summer to early fall.
The Pink Pearl is among hundreds of heirloom varieties that is near extinction. Only a handful of farmers in the U.S. are still growing and harvesting them.
In 1944, Pink Pearl heirloom apples were hybridized in Northern California crossed with an apple named Surprise, a red-fleshed rather sour variety. It is thought that this latter apple was derived from a century old variety of red-fleshed Turkish crab apples. Albert Etter is said to have developed Pink Pearl to create a sweeter tasting apple.
