An early ripening Apple – Yellow Transparent, early August

An early ripening Apple – Yellow Transparent that ripens in early August.

Apple - Yellow Transparent

Apple – Yellow Transparent

In good years (like 2019) it was ripe in late July. It was thought to be a US variety, but it originated in Latvia, 1850’s, hence its cold hardiness.

There is thought that this variety is the same as White Transparent. It is regarded as an early cooker, but when jully ripe it can be eaten. But they do not store, so must be gathered and used straight away.
