Nice! Interesting color - mine ripen up white with a pink blush (or pink showing through the skin). I don’t think I’ve seen any yellow like that.

That looks pretty normal for Pink Pearl (to me), though the exteriors were unusual.

I really like this apple.

I love novelty fruit. I don’t know why I never see the red-fleshed ones in stores; this and Hidden Rose taste good to me.

I look forward to when mine are bearing age.

Hey everyone, my moms pink pearl I graffted on g30 finally has some fruit. I’m in zone 5A, wondering what others zones are and when you generally see these as ‘ripe’?

Is this a decent apple? Will it do ok in a hot-humid mid-Atlantic locale?

I have 2 apples of Pink Pearl graft. One fell off 7 days ago. It tasted awful, sour/astringent. The second one fell off 3-4 days ago. I have gotten around to taste it yet.
