Cripps Pink Apple Scionwood (Spring 2024)


An excellent Australian dessert apple that grows well in warm climates.

The tree is vigorous and prolific. It is moderately susceptible to the other major apple diseases and especially susceptible to cedar-apple rust. While Cripps Pink will do just fine in zone 5, we recommend zones 6 and higher for fully ripe fruit; it requires a very long growing season. A low chill hours requirement also make this a great tree for southern states. Growers will find that the juvenile tree produces inferior fruit, but that quality will improve significantly as the tree matures.

The apples are elongated and somewhat blocky. The golden-yellow skin is flushed bright pink and starred with lenticels.

Clean vs. Regular

Our clean scion is harvested from trees grown on G.16, which is extremely sensitive to viruses. These trees would not have survived if the scion contained viruses. Our clean wood has not been lab tested. Regular = may contain one of the common latent viruses; this is not usually a problem and can be used with most rootstocks.
