Robbie Sigona’s Produce Tips: Pink Lady Apples
First of all, these Pink Ladies are from a small organic farmer in Cuyama. The apples are not waxed, so you won’t get the shiny look that the WA apples have.
- Choose Pink Lady apples that are as pink as possible. If the apple possesses other colors other than pink, those colors should be more of a yellow, not green, color.
- Select the apples that are heavy for their size.
- Look for apples that have as little blemishes as possible.
- As with any apple, these Pink Ladies get that waxy/sticky texture when old, so when choosing, pick those apples that aren’t waxy or sticky in texture, but pick those that are smooth and slick.
