More About Apple (Malus) 'Yellow Transparent'

  • the early apple to which all others are judged
  • early to bear and precocious

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.
