The Apple Harvest has officially begun!
Yesterday our Transparent apples were ready for harvest. Our one Transparent variety tree gave us just shy of 2 bushels this year. (Some trees we can get 4 or even 5 bushels from!)
Both bushels very promptly sold to an anxious customer waiting for the Transparents to ripen.
Transparents are a very soft variety, and, if you ask my opinion, almost rather tasteless ;) People like to use them for Applesauce because of their texture - they mash up nicely.
Here is some neat information on this variety! I always enjoy researching the variety of apples we have and learning all I can about them.
