Apples survive summer heat

A fall favorite has been able to survive the heat, humidity and lack of rain this summer

We are talking about apples. Jim Zellerman, co-owner of Edgewood Orchards, said this year crop is looking good. The gala apples are ready, while the honey crisp still have a few more weeks. Zellerman said this spring played a big role in this year’s crop when the bees pollinated the trees.

"Certainly a little bit more rain would’ve added some size to the apples, but they look like they are sizing up well." said Zellerman. I think it is going to be a great crop in general."

Edgewood Orchards opens for the first time of the season this Saturday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. They will be selling their gala apples, pears, and their cider slushies.
