Growing Calendar for Apple Tickled Pink- Apple Tree
Delivery: Early November to Late April
Apple Tickled Pink is a new dual purpose variety of Apple with an extraordinary and unusual red coloured flesh. This variety was first introduced in to the UK in 2011, it is amongst one of the very best of true red-fleshed apples for its delicious eating flavour.
When on the tree the apples appear to look just as any other ordinary red apple, when cut open the striking red flesh is revealed. The flavour is tart but is pleasantly mild, this flesh is extremely juicy.
The blossoms of tickled pink are an especially attractive and distinct feature of this variety, they are a deep solid crimson shade of red, and this makes the variety a considerable ornamental feature in your spring garden.
As you could expect, Tickled Pink is a very useful apple for cooking in the kitchen. The slices of Pink keep their shape very well when cooked and have an attractive pink colouring. The juice produced from Tickled Pink is a wonderful pink shade.
