Lodi Apple

Lodi Apple trees grow between 10 and 25 feet tall (3 to 7 1/2 metres), and produce apples ready for an early harvest from mid-July to August.

The medium-sized apples have thick, yellowish-green skin.

Inside, the white flesh is tender, soft and juicy. The flavour is tart with some sweetness.

Yellow Transparent Apples

Sometimes Lodi gets confused with its parent, Yellow Transparent. Lodi Apples are a bit taller. The skin of the Yellow Transparent will ripen until almost transparent; Lodi will not. In making sauce, Lodi cooks more quickly than Yellow Transparent to a smooth purée. Lodi Apples also store and ship a bit better.

Cooking Tips

Many people rave about the applesauce made from Lodi Apples. The apples cook down very quickly, preserving more of the flavour.

Storage Hints

Don't store well.

History Notes

Introduced in 1924 by the New York State Agricultural Experiment Station at Geneva from a cross between Montgomery and Yellow Transparent.
