Not only will there be way more Michigan apples this year, they’ll probably be bigger and better looking too.
According to estimates from the United States Department of Agriculture, Michigan apple growers are likely to produce 26.1 million bushels this season. The 5 year average is 19.5 million bushels. Only Washington and New York state grow more.
Denise Donohue is the Executive Director of the Michigan Apple Committee.
“This is the 5th year on the rollercoaster for Michigan. It’s been an up and down thing for the last three years in particular.”
