Following the success of last year's event, the Pick a Pink Lady Weekend is making its return from 4 May 2019 to 5 May 2019. Also known as the Cripps Pink, the Pink Lady Apple is a variety of apple created by crossing the Australian Lady William Apple with the Golden Delicious.
Participants can visit one of four family-run orchards in the Adelaide Hills region where they can pick and enjoy their own Pink Lady Apples as well as learning about how they are produced from the growers themselves. The orchards that are part of this year's event are:
Joel & Peter Brockhoff at Bundaleer: 471 Swamp Road, Lenswood, SA
Ceravolo Orchards: 151 Mappinga Road, Oakbank, SA
Mahnew Orchard: 640 Swamp Road, Lenswood, SA
Stafford Orchards: 26 Coldstore Road, Lenswood, SA
Various products and drinks created from apples will also be on sale at each orchard. Entry into each orchard costs $5 per adult with children under 12 years old being able to enter for free. Prices of apples that are available for purchase will be set by the growers themselves.
