Pinkabelle® has many exciting features for the home gardener!
It is a compact, spur bearing dwarf Cripps Pink( Pink LadyTM apple variety. Pinkabelle® grows to approximately 2 metres tall by approximately 1 metre wide. It produces full size, export quality Pink LadyTM apples. PINKABELLE DOES NOT REQUIRE PRUNING! and is part of our Backyard Beauties ™ Range
Fruit matures approximately 7 - 14 days earlier than standard Pink LadyTM - 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. With a spring flush of flowers, it is enough to put you way ahead of the Joneses.
Pinkabelle is back in the nurseries for its 8th year.

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