Yellow Transparent Apple


Yellow Transparent Apple

Summer. Parentage unknown. Russia, probably before 1800.

Brought to the U.S. in 1870 and quickly spread throughout Maine. One of our most-requested varieties.

Medium-sized light yellow fruit has a tender skin you can almost see through. Tart fresh eating and cooks up into a flavorful slightly tart light yellow sauce in 6-7 minutes. Skip the sugar. Skins will dissolve in your mouth as you eat.

Transparents ripen fairly early in August and beware: they come mostly all at once and go by quickly. Get the sauce pot ready and don’t blink or you might miss them. It’s okay to eat or cook them a little on the green side. When the first of them fall to the ground, pick the rest within a week or so.

Incredibly hardy. Blooms midseason. Z3. Maine Grown. (Standard: 3-6' bare-root trees)
