With red skin and juicy, red flesh Malus domestica Tickled Pink is a great dual-purpose apple – with its mild, tart flavour it is ideal for both cooking and eating. As the blossom showers the ground with deep crimson, the tree makes a great ornamental specimen for the spring garden. 

Everything about this apple is pink- from the beautiful blossom to the juice it creates! Slices keep their shape and colour when cooked (making a wonderful tarte tatin) and it featured in the dessert finals of the BBC cookery programme 'Great British Menu' (series 14) in May 2019.

  • Flowers: May
  • Harvest: September (keeps well until Jan)
  • Hardy
  • Well drained soil 
  • South or West aspect 
  • Full sun 
  • Sheltered
  • Rootstock indicates this is semi-dwarf size – ideal for small to medium gardens.
  • Will need staking
  • As this is not self-fertile, it will require a pollinator nearby (if you are planting in an urban area, you may not need to plant a partner)
  • Best grown in a sheltered, sunny spot where the blossom can attract pollinators and the fruit can ripen in the sun. Prune annually to achieve the optimum crop.
  • For an increased yield, plant with other apples.

Light and sweet
