Pink Lady Apples in SF?

I have a recipe for an apple pie that calls for Pink Lady apples. Has anyone seen Pink Lady apples in SF markets recently? Thanks!

  1. Several sizes available at Berkeley Bowl. I just bought some and BBE is convenient to BART.

    1. They're in season, and market with a good produce selection should have them (according their website, Safeway has them).

        According to the ladies at Rainbow Orchards at Apple Hill, Pink Lady's make the best apple pie...we shall see! Thanks

          They are very good eating apples but very dense and rather dry as apples go. They cook up firm and hold their shape. They certainly will make a great pie, but I would add some Granny Smiths to soften it up a bit.

            Pink Ladies are my go to for pie. I usually mix in some Fuji in about a 2-3 parts Pink Lady to 1 part Fuji.
