description for "Apples: Malus domestica 'Pink Pearl'"

'Pink Pearl' is a pink-fleshed, pearly-skinned apple that is not just a novelty, but a good-tasting tart apple with firm flesh. Blooms very attractive, darker pink than most. Makes pink applesauce and attractive fruit tarts. An Albert Etter introduction, a very popular variety. Minimum of 6 hours of sun required during growing season. 3-4 years until fruit bearing. 'Pink Pearl' is a cross-pollinator which is best pollinated by the varieties 'King David' and 'Fameuse'. -- edited by dtd pbcouchman
