Yellow Transparent Apple Variety

Post by At_Home » Fri Nov 05, 2010 3:21 pm

I am interested in finding Yellow Transparent apples by the bushel when in season.

My mother used to make the best applesauce from these apples, but we cannot find them anymore.

Can anyone please help?

I am in NJ so eastern PA, NY state, or NJ would be great but I'd be willing to have them shipped if necessary.

Thanks in advance.

If you look up the Brogdale website in England you will find Yellow Transparent has a heap of alternate names. It is commonly also known as White Transparent or Klarapfel. The variety originated in Russia.
My White Transparent tree in Australia fruited two weeks ago. The fruit was pale yellow in colour and the rather course flesh was sweet but slightly acid. The fruit did not keep well and went floury in a couple of days after picking - but I am sure it would make a great apple sauce. The White Transparent fruits very early - well before most other varieties.
If you look up the alternate names (particularly White Transparent) you may find the fruit you are looking for.
