Down year expected for Michigan's apple crop

Andrew Norton

According to the Michigan Apple Committee the Michigan apple crop is expected to be "1/3 or more below average." April snow, a May freeze, and weather too hot for ideal pollination all contributed to the expected fewer apples this fall. The first apple (and most in demand) variety available in Michigan is the Honeycrisp. These apples are usually much more expensive than other varieties due to the demand far outstripping the supply. With a lower yield this year you can expect to pay a lot more come mid-September when the apples are ready.

One thing you can do is to find your local apple grower and either go apple picking (a highly enjoyable event in our household) or purchase their already picked selection. Visit to find an orchard or cider mill near you.
