The best for pie and sauce!
This tree can be found at old deserted homesteads stubbornly continuing to bear fruit. It's a very early, perhaps one of the earliest, apples with a very sour taste. Therefore, it's not much for eating. It also bruises very easily and doesn't last long after being picked. Why is it a favorite then? As I said in the title, it's the absolute BEST for baking into pies and making into spiced or plain applesauce. Yes, it's better than Granny Smith and even the now trendy Honeycrisp. It cooks up delightfully easy. If you like crunchy apples in your pie, then this isn't for you. The yellow transparent bakes into a soft, melt-in-your mouth filling with outstanding old-time flavor. It also cooks up quickly into a sauce to accompany your weeknight dinner. Throw a few redhots in while cooking for a little pizzazz. These trees are hard to find in nurseries, but are well worth the tending once you plant one. It may bear every other year. The Lodi apple is very similar to Yellow Transparent and is easier to find.
