About Tickled Pink

A superb choice for anyone looking for an attractive ornamental and edible apple.

The tree has exquisite carmine-pink blossom in spring, followed by the beautiful ruby red fruits in autumn.

They are delicious eaten straight from the tree and are great all-rounders in the kitchen too, keeping their lovely tart flavour and holding their shape well when cooked. Their pink flesh looks stunning in pies and crumbles and produces abundant pink juice when pressed.

Characteristics of Tickled Pink:

    • Fruit: Dual purpose eating, cooking and juicing. Red. Mild-tart.
    • Pollination: Group C.
    • Harvesting: September to October. Stores for a couple of weeks
    • Characteristics: Crimson blossom. Red spring foliage. Red fruits with red flesh
    • Suitable for: Training, freestanding, organic cultivation

Great for your garden:

Malus domestica Tickled Pink is best planted in an open, sunny spot, away from frost pockets, and they need other apples planted nearby that will aid pollination. If you’d like to find your tree a partner you can browse our full range of apple trees here.


On opening, the foliage has a lovely red tinge to it, and with the gorgeous crimson blossom they are a wonderful addition to the spring garden, and the bees love them!

They look fantastic as a specimen in a lawn worked into an informal or cottage garden planting scheme or trained against a sunny wall. Their fruits are also highly ornamental, bringing colour to the garden through autumn.

Look out for:
Tickled Pink is surprisingly tough and disease resistant and has particularly good resistance to scab.


Tickled Pink Trivia

The 'Redlove' apple was said to be the first red-fleshed apple in the world, bred by the Markus Kobert, a Swiss fruit grower, and was available to buy in 2010.

This caused controversy however when the people of Bakran, a small Iranian village heard the news. They claimed that their area of the Semnan Province had a native apple not only with red flesh, but with red roots, and bark and young leaves too! The apple, said to be native to that region, has been feeding local communities there for centuries.

How Apple Trees are Measured & Delivered:

Our fruit trees are delivered in up to 3 shapes and you can also buy selected apple trees as ready made cordons.

Maiden: This unbranched tree is the smallest starting size. You can train maidens into espaliers and cordons.
Bush: This is a style of freestanding tree with a short trunk of about 60cms. It will grow to about 3 metres tall.
Half-Standard: This is a freestanding style that will grow into a full-sized, "normal" apple tree, about 4 metres tall.
