Pinkabelle® - Apple Tree

The Plant

Pinkabelle® (variety Pink Belle cv PBR) has many exciting features for the home gardener!

It is a compact, spur bearing dwarf Cripps Pink and grows to approximately 2 metres tall by approximately 1 metre wide. It produces full size, export quality fruit. PINKABELLE DOES NOT REQUIRE PRUNING UNLESS A PARTICULAR TREE SHAPE IS REQUIRED! and is part of our Backyard Beauties Range


Fruit matures approximately 7 - 14 days earlier than standard Cripps Pink (Pink Lady™)- which means anytime from ANZAC Day, depending on what state you live in.

Pinkabelle® is a true dwarf which means the tree is dwarfing - not the rootstock which is usually the case for other dwarfing apple trees. This means we can use a non dwarfing rootstock to grow our trees, which are generally more robust and water efficient.

Pinkabelle® can be used in all sized gardens and has many uses including pots, tubs, small screens or hedges, specimen shrub/trees, feature plants for the courtyard, deck or balcony.

Pinkabelle® is back in the nurseries for its 11th year.


The Pollinators

All apples need pollinators. Pinkabelle® is partially self fertile, which means it will set small amounts of fruit without a pollinator - HOWEVER - it will benefit from cross pollination, which will result in more fruit setting on your plant.

Leprechaun(Dwarf Granny Smith) is a great pollination partner but also Crab apples, Granny Smith, Gala, Fuji and Red Delicious apple varieties are some of the most common Pinkabelle® cross pollinators and all are available in dwarf form from PlantNet.

Not recommended for coastal QLD and Northern NSW as winters are not cold enough to produce fruit.
