Yellow Transparent (Malus 'Yellow Transparent') is a deciduous, fruit tree that originates from Russia in 1870 and is now widely grown in the northern states because of its early summer apples, some of the earliest ripening apples available!

Featuring a unique, delightfully yellow-hued bark, and lush, green foliage.

Pollinators are grateful for the early display of pink or white flowers and their nectar resource. You'll adore the display as well, as a welcome break from the winter doldrums.

It's not long before the apples follow, with their skin a clear, pale yellow that's greenish, yellow to nearly white.

The flesh of the Yellow Transparent Apple is tender white, with a juicy and mildly acidic flavor that makes it a favorite for homemade applesauce and other culinary delights such as juice, cider, and other baked goodies!

How to Use Yellow Transparent Apple Tree In The Landscape

Yellow Transparent will provide you with an early harvest, with the apples ripening as early as July! Meaning it is a fantastic choice for northern gardeners! One of the Yellow Transparent's prized features is that it's very cold hardy (thus a favorite in northern climates).

Smaller form and upright growth make these space-saving trees are great for smaller gardeners as well! Yellow Transparent Apple Tree is a very upright, precocious and productive tree. Therefore, it's also a heavy producer!

For an extended season of harvest, plant amid other, late-maturity varieties. You can harvest the apples at their peak or pick some before maturity for better storage life.

Plant one in your backyard where it will be visible from a patio or window so you can enjoy the spring display and watching your harvest grow.

Sized perfectly for urban and city gardening, as well as specimen and focal point plantings for dual purpose and edible landscaping!

Plant as an accent or anchor in larger plantings among other smaller trees, shrubs and perennials for a long season of blossoms!

#ProPlantTips For Care

Fruit trees like Apples require full sun for the best fruit and bloom! Be sure to provide your tree at least 8 hours of direct sunlight.

Best in organically rich, fertile and well-drained soil, amend with compost for more fertility and raise the planting level if drainage is an issue.

For best harvests and the juiciest apples, be sure to provide your tree a consistent watering schedule and do not allow them to go long in drought.

While drought-tolerant once established, protect your investment with regular waterings in times of need.

A generous layer of mulch helps retain soil moisture as well as insulate the root system from heat and chill.

Prune in late winter when dormant to open the crown for air circulation and to allow sunlight into the interior.

Yellow Transparent is a scab-resistant Apple variety as well and considered relatively disease-resistant!

You can’t go wrong with a Yellow Transparent Apple Tree in your yard, especially if you live in a northern locale. It's a lovely tree that will provide you with delicious fruit early in the season for years to come.
