Better late than never for apples

Apple harvesters are getting out to their orchards after a rainy start to September. This year’s apple crop also got off to slow start because of the cool spring temperatures, but the weather in recent weeks has also allowed the fruit still on trees to ripen and get a little more color. Wood Orchard owner Steve Wood says apples are making their way from the trees to grocery stores and fruit stands.

According to the Wisconsin Apple Growers Association, orchard owners produce over 54 million pounds of fruit every year and are a $24 million industry.
