The East and Near West locations are now carrying the Organic Pink Pearl Apple (see photo). This heirloom variety was developed in the early 1940s by California farmer Albert Etter, as a seedling of Surprise, another red-fleshed apple.
Pink Pearl apples are generally medium sized, with a conical shape. They are named for their bright, pink flesh and have translucent yellow-green skin, with a crisp, juicy sweet-tart taste. Availability is limited, as they ripen from late August to mid-September.
