Your favorite baked goods will receive high marks when you use the creamy-white and tender Yellow Transparent Apples! Just imagine creamy white applesauce and apple butter!
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!
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!
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.

Planting Bareroot trees as soon as you can dig a hole in spring and until hot weather, the earlier the better. Plant container Apple trees throughout the growing season with complete success - that is the benefit of container plants - to extend the planting season. Your County Agricultural Extension Office is a great resource for first and last frost dates in your area.
Dig a large hole only as deep as needed to accommodate the bareroot or container root ball, and twice as wide. Add Nature Hills Root Booster to speed root establishment. Remove the pot or bag and situate it into the hole so the top of the soil (soil line if bareroot), is level with the new location's soil being careful not to plant too deep. Water in again very well and backfill with the same soil you dug up, tamping down gently to ensure there are no air pockets.
Top off with a 3-4 inch thick layer of Arborist mulch. Consider staking your tree to keep its trunk growing straight for the first year to ensure it stands tall against strong winds and drifting snow.
Trim off any broken branches from delivery as soon as you take them out of the box. Prune and trim apple trees while dormant, in late winter or early spring, before you see new growth.

Growing an apple tree is easy when proper soil, good drainage, attention to moisture, and regular fertility are maintained. Once you've chosen an apple tree that works for your climate, in the size you need for your landscape, and its pollinator (if needed), then you've accomplished half the battle!
Apple trees will tolerate a wide range of soils, so long as water and nutrients are not limited and the pH level is adequate.
For the first year, water alone is most important. It is always best to get a soil test to see what your soil is lacking before adding more fertilizers. Once established, a fertilizer routine may be beneficial. We do offer some excellent slow-release organic options, applied according to the package directions.
Fruit trees need more phosphate and it's possible to apply too much nitrogen which affects the soil's pH. Test soil acidity or alkalinity using a pH Tester.
Fertilize in spring when you first see new growth emerging.
Yellow Transparent is not self-fruiting and needs a pollinating partner. Pair with one of these varieties:
Yellow Transparent’s are typically ready to harvest in June.
Early-Season? Mid-Season? Late-Season? The terminology can be confusing for new apple tree growers. Weather, climate and your tree determine when it's ripe.
The growing season consists of spring, summer, and fall, and varies with climate and weather. Areas with longer growing seasons in the warmer hardiness zones can greatly affect the harvest times for each particular apple variety grown in your area. Learn which growing zone you are in.
