Apple Harvest Time

Apple Harvest Time     

Determining when apples are ready to be harvested can be tricky. You need to know the variety of the apple and its approximate harvest date. These dates vary each year with fluctuations in blooming rates, degree days and rainfall. If you’re growing your own apples, perhaps the best way to tell if they are ripe is to taste a couple. If they taste great, go for it. Another great way to judge if an apple variety is ready is to check seed color. Seeds will go from white to brown as the fruit ripens. When picking, simply lift the apple up. It should just snap off into your hand.
