Yakima, WA – Loaded with love, Pink Lady® apples are the ideal apple for February Valentine’s Day promotion. The bright pink hue along with a sweet tart flavor creates the ideal merchandising opportunity.

Pink Lady apples, also known as Cripps Pink, are one of the rising stars of the apple industry, steadily holding sixth place in top nationwide apples. Category data shows that Pink Lady is up 3.4% in dollars versus last year, and up 8% in volume (IRI data through 11/5/17).

Pink Lady apples, with their blush pink skin create an ideal merchandising opportunity. The bright sweettart flavor with hints of honey and butter, and subtle acidic finish pair well with savory ingredients such as onion, chili, pink peppercorns, and cheese. Among cheese, milder types such as Monterey Jack and creamy cheeses such as Boursin pair well with Pink Lady apples. Rosé wine, known for bright fruity flavors, pair well with Pink Lady apples. Cross merchandise for a pink prominent display.

The Pink Lady is a rising star at Superfresh Growers® and is slated for more than 50% growth for both organic and conventional over the next five years. Available year-round in both 2lb organic pouch bags and 3lb conventional pouch bags. Reach out to your Superfresh Growers sales representative to set Pink Lady ads for the upcoming season.
