One of the earliest apples to ripen. Too sharp as a dessert apple for most people but good as a cooker.
Origin: Russia, 1800
Pollination: White Transparent is partially self-fertile and would produce some crop without a pollinator but would benefit considerably from a pollinator.
History and description of White Transparent
White Transparent apple arose in Russia or the Baltic States. Widely grown in 19th Century Europe.
Introduced to North America in 1870 where it was known as Yellow Transparent and grown commercially
as an early dual purpose variety. Still grown in Russia and Sweden.
Medium sized, round-conical fruit. Very pale green skin with a white bloom. Juicy, almost white
flesh. Quite sharp, refreshing taste. A little too sharp as a dessert apple. A good culinary variety
cooking to a cream coloured puree with good flavour needing little added sugar. The fruit bruises
easily and goes soft soon after picking.
Moderately vigorous tree. Very hardy. Good resistance to scab and mildew, but susceptible to canker
and fireblight. Good, regular cropper. The very pale, almost luminescent, green apples look
attractive on the tree.
