Apple harvest is ramping up at Stemilt Growers, and all across Washington state. Currently, Stemilt is harvesting Gala apples with Fuji, Honeycrisp, and Golden Delicious following close behind. As a state, it appears that the Washington apple crop will fall short of the estimated 108.8 million box crop predicted in August. Fruit size and eating qualities have strengthened thanks to cooler temperatures (80’s and low 90’s) throughout apple growing regions.
