Transparente Blanche apple

/tranz-pah-ROHNT BLO'SH-uh/

A name in Sweden for White Transparent, a variety of Russian, yellow dual-purpose apple which appeared in Europe in the early 19th Century and reached the United States by 1870. The flavour is sharp and cooks to a cream purée. Not much loved in England. This very early-season apple is harvested from late July and has poor storage properties.
