2017 A Banner Year for New York Apples

Red apples

There was plenty of complaining about Central New York’s wet summer this year. As golfers, Polly and I were 2 of the ducks at the head of that puddle. There is a payoff to all the rain, apples. The 2017 apple crop is being called one of the best when it comes to taste and there’s plenty to go around.
New York is the 2nd largest producer of apples in the US and if you recall 2016 wasn’t one of the best years. In fact some ‘U-Pick” locations didn’t even open for that part of the season.

In an interview with The Finger Lakes Times, Julia Stewart with the Apple Growers Association bragged on this year’s crop.

The apples are big, plenty sweet and have great visual appeal.

This is just the start of the apple season with lots cider mills now opening. There should be plenty of fresh apples, ciders, donuts and other goodies into November.  Read more about NY’s apple crop in Steve Buchiere’s article. Here’s 5 good places to start the tasting.
