A small apple with a green and red colored outer skin covering a white, firm textured, juicy inner flesh that provides a tart to sweet flavor. It is an apple that can be used for canning, as a garnish, for sauces, or for small snacks. Because of its small size and nice appearance, this apple is commonly used to decorate wreaths and fruit baskets during Christmas, hence the reference to it as the Christmas apple. It is a variety that is, at times confused with the Pink Lady® apple in name only, but is not related. The Pink Lady® was developed in Australia in the early 1970's while the Lady apple is a very old apple, possibly grown during the early days of Rome and derived from the Api family of apples.
