Bred to be an easier-to-grow modern replacement of sorts for Yellow Transparent. Not quite as pale and translucent as its parent, Lodi is nevertheless a highly attractive conical slightly ribbed smooth-skinned light green apple that appears to glow on the tree when ripe in midsummer. Medium- to fine-grained white flesh with green highlights. Very tart fresh eating, more so than Granny Smith, which it resembles in color. Great for sauce and summer pies.
