Import Apple Season Begins
In our last apple update we talked about how we had a shortage of domestic apples this year and that the season was starting to dwindle. A month later the domestic apple supply coming out of Controlled Atmosphere(CA) is very tight and supplies are limited. As the domestic season is finishing the first varieties of the import apples are starting up with Galas arriving now and Golden Delicious scheduled for the end of April. We can look forward to the Granny Smith, Braeburn and Red Delicious in the first half of May and the Fuji and Cripps Pink in the latter half of May. Imports will continue into late July/early August when the first California Gravensteins are harvested.
