Kauffman Homegrown Fresh Yellow Transparent Apples, Makes Light-Colored Sauce

Product ID: YTBOX

Selected accessories will also be added to cart
Sold out until late July

  • Yellow Transparent is highly-famous for making a beautiful, light-colored and light-textured applesauce.

  • The selections labeled "Small" are tree-run apples and are smaller than most apples. Yellow Transparent is naturally smaller than most other apples, which is part of the reason they're great for sauce - there is less cutting work. "Small" apples vary in size from approximately 2.25" diameter to approximately 3.25" in diameter.

  • The selections not marked "Small" are the largest Yellow Transparent apples available in this year's crop. These average approximately 3.5" in diameter.

  • Watch "How to Make and Can Homemade Applesauce" Video.
Can you believe it? You don't even have to drive to an orchard to buy premium applesauce apples anymore! Why wouldn't you just order one (or more) of these apple boxes, packed with fruit that's juicy, tasty, and that contain many health benefits!

Normally available through most of July, Yellow Transparent is the earliest-ripening variety of them all, is one of the oldest, and is still a popular favorite of local applesauce makers who prefer a tarter, full-of-flavor apple with that smooth, light texture and wonderfully attractive light color (just ask older Kauffman ladies like Lonnie's grandmother Minerva, or younger ones like Tony’s wife Jody).

The summer months are a grand time to make applesauce with your children and is also a VERY busy (and extremely rewarding!) time of year! Maybe you'd like to see here and here how your big applesauce-making days compare to a Mennonite mom, who lives nearby in south-central Pennsylvania,

Although most of the Yellow Transparent apples grown here in our GMO-free Bird-in-Hand PA orchards are made into applesauce by our customers we keep being reminded by folks like this and like this in other communities who maintain that this variety also produces superb apple pies! Which leads us to believe that apple crisp, apple cakes and other apple dishes may not be outside the realm of possibility for this notable heirloom variety! We here at Kauffman's would be delighted to hear how these apples perform in any of various usages - simply click on Product Reviews tab, above, and enter your thoughts!

More summertime "applesauce specialist" varieties that are favorites of many Moms here in Lancaster County PA include Earligold and Summer Rambo.

We pack our fresh-from-our-orchard fruit into boxes liberally lined with high-density foam cushioning. Each apple occupies its own foam slot for protection, and we pack the box with fruit that is of highest quality. However, we have no control over distance, storage, temperature, or handling during transit, so if the fruit arrives overripe or spoiled, we most likely will not offer a refund, although you're welcome to contact us about it. We offer, AND RECOMMEND THAT YOU CHOOSE, 2nd Business Day or Next Business Day options to expedite timely shipping of this more tender variety to your house. This item is not available for sale in or to California, Oregon and Washington.
