Inventory, lb : 0
Lady Alice apples are small to medium in size and are round and squat in shape. The smooth skin is bright yellow with pink and red striping covering almost the entire surface of the fruit. The firm flesh is pale yellow to cream-colored, and there is a central fibrous core that runs the length of the fruit that encases a small five-pointed star-shaped seed cavity with a few flat dark brown seeds. Lady Alice apples are crisp, juicy, and predominately sweet with an aftertaste that turns to tart; some have compared it to the Honeycrisp apple.
The Lady Alice apple is available mid-winter through early spring.

The Lady Alice originated in the 1970s in the United States. A farmer named Don Emmons in Gleed, Washington, purportedly hit one of his Red Delicious trees with a plow, which produced a new shoot with some unusual apples. The apples were then marketed as Lady Alices, and introduced to the American market.
