Apple Rebound



The bumper crop should have been a bonanza for fruit shoppers, but damage from a couple of late spring hailstorms blunted its effect. "It wasn't every apple by any means, but I had so many apples that I saw a one-inch gash in them," says Bruce Upston, co-owner of Wasem Fruit Farm in Milan.

"It's not a total loss by any means," Upston says. "We'll be able to sell some of them as seconds and use a lot of them for cider-but we're going to have to be a little more diligent when we're sorting fruit than we would be in normal years."    (end of article)
