it is a gift for a friend and that is the one she has been looking for , I believe her Dad had one in their yard .

Grandfather had one tree on his homestead. They are a mealy apple that is tart with just a hint of sweet. They bruise very easily, and crack very easily, and they don't keep but just a few days after harvest. They are, in my opinion, not very good for eating out of hand. However, their real value comes from the OUTSTANDING apple butter that can be made from them. They also make a deliciously sweet tart fried apple if you don't mind them a little on the mushy side.

Makes the absolute best applesauce, and old fashioned fried apples! Have been hunting for this old tree for years! This is why I shopped stark.
Lesa R on Mar 16, 2016
My grandmother has 2 of these trees in her yard and I grew up eating these in applebutter, applesauce, pies, and jellies. I know first hand that they freeze well, cook well, and have a great taste. I knew that as soon as I had the property I wanted one of these trees! Finding someone who still sold them was difficult, though--I'm very pleased with Stark brother's selection and price!

Yellow transparent apple tree
This is the first year for the tree, blooming nicely and appears to be very healthy. It isn't time in our part of the country but a very old yellow transparent tree we have had for many years always bears proflic quanties.

best applesauce in the world
Tart and smooth, cooks with little water because the skin causes the sauce to thicken. Eat with warm biscuits for a treat you will never forget.

Yellow Transparent apple tre
Purchased the tree last year, planted it according to instructions provided. This spring despite the late frost, our tree is thriving. We are excited to see it grow. Now, if we could just figure out how to keep the deer away.

Deer like this one the best!
At first the deer insured that any branch leaders were thoroughly pruned. After that they had no choice but to try the Macintosh. If you buy these be sure to have a tall fence screen around each tree! I hope to see apples in a few more years.

Yellow Transparent Apple
My Yellow Transparent Apple is in its second summer on my property, and is healthy and happy, growing well. It was a fairly small tree, but in excellent condition, when it arrived, so it hasn't yet bloomed, but that is to be expected. My experience with Stark was excellent, and I would recommend both the company and this product.

My yellow Transparent tree is growing and has put out a lot of leaves this spring I think it will do well this year. These apples are so good in early summer. My parents had this tree and we enjoyed fried apples at breakfast which were really yummy!
