Just to add some non usefull information..... Myself and OH took a year out and travelled around Australia, where we picked up jobs fruit and veg picking, Pink lady apple being one. There was a special technique that you had to use to pick them off the tree, which I never really mastered!! and certain conditions to pick in, hot dry weather. Pink lady apples are big business in Australia, I think especially being exported to Japan. They way to tell if you've got a good en is when you cut it into half there should be a lovely jelly like consistency.. yum yum!!
