Holy Cross Transparent Apple Harvest
July 7 @ 4:00 pm - 6:30 pm
Join us for a Transparent apple harvest at Holy Cross Orchard! Transparent apples are an early varietal of apple that originates from Latvia in the 1850s. In notes shared from Holy Cross orchard steward, Micki Larimer, the White Transparent apple (also known by the name ‘Papirovka’) is famous for making especially creamy and flavorful applesauce. Micki shares that the apple’s flavor is light and lively — a refreshing taste with verve and snap. When eaten at their peak, the flesh is crisp, medium-coarse, and juicy, softening with greater maturity. The flavor is also sometimes described as tart, with some lime, a little gingery spice, and occasional hints of lemonade. Micki notes that their is some variation between individual Transparents and encourages that you try more than one!
