Yellow Transparent Apple

Malus domestica 'Yellow Transparent'

Yellow Transparent is just about the earliest summer apple. It is medium-large with transluscent pale yellow skin. Some say it makes the best sauces because of its crisp, very sweet juicy, white flesh that is very light and texture, but it is also wonderful in pies. Trees are upright, vigorous growers that bear fruit very young. Ripen from early July to early August.

Homeowner Growing and Maintenance Tips

Yellow Transparent is a very hardy variety. It is somewhat scab resistant, but can be susceptible to fire blight. It needs to be thinned hard and early to get good size. A good pollinator for early varieties.

A Little History about Yellow Transparent Apple

Originated in Russia and introduced in 1870. In many parts of the country it is very popular with the Amish who demand it for sauce early in the season. Grandpa spent many days thinning Yellow Transparent by hand when he was kid!
