    Apples produce a gas called ethylene on ripening. People are often shocked to hear this as it does sound somewhat mysterious and unappetizing but have no fear; ethylene is a natural plant hormone that sets off the ripening process. And, amazingly, any other fruits that are stored in close proximity to apples will ripen more quickly!   Richard Jones is Corporate Content Director for Meister Media Worldwide.

Therefore, whenever possible, we buy locally grown produce. When "in season" you will find our departments stocked with apples and apple cider from Burnham Orchards located in Berlin Heights, and pumpkins, watermelons, cantaloupe, cabbage, peppers, and other delicious fruits and vegetables grown on Amish farms in southern Lorain county.

Different size apples meet different needs, so keep both large and small apples on your display. Market smaller varieties to parents and kids looking for a lunch box staple.

Push larger apples as a good fit for cooking. Offer apples in bags or clamshells along with bulk apples. Use apples’ vibrant and varied colors to create an eye-catching.

Washington state will produce million standard pound boxes of fresh apples inaccording to the Washington State Tree Fruit Association (WSTFA). The forecast, made in early August, is down percent from ’s record crop of million boxes, but is still projected to be Washington’s third largest apple harvest behind the.

For example, apples grown in Grant County can be sold at a fruit stand in any Eastern Washington county or sold in a farmers market anywhere in the state without inspection.

Apples are unique. They differ from other foods because they’re one of the best sources of pectin, a type of fiber. Research indicates that pectin limits the cholesterol the body absorbs and may be an important link in preventing heart disease. The market for apples has expanded rapidly. With technological advances, apple is not just a fruit but an important input for many products such as juices.

Therefore, demand for apples has been gradually increasing. Naturally, a high demand causes the price to rise. But there are other factors that affect the price.

These factors are studied from demand and supply sides. Learn about all the delicious apple varieties Washington has to offer, as well as tips for care and handling of fresh Washington apples. Not only do Hispanics historically like apples, they are growing in economic power in the United States.

While some imports complement the domestic supply, the fact remains all apples go to storage for a period of time. New York’s supply and price control the amount that is imported. “Some of the new Import Club Varieties are picking up, but in many cases, this complements our domestic sales by extending the market time,” says NYAA’s Allen.

Washington apple growers are not only the first to supply the market with domestic apples in a big way every year, trailing only the modest California supply, but they also usually lead in taking new varieties mainstream. Consumer interest in the new varieties is making the apple category ever more complex, challenging, and, potentially, rewarding.

Traditional apple harvesting requires a large, semi-skilled workforce for a short time. Shake-and-catch technology has been successful in harvesting fruit for the processing market, but no commercial success has been achieved in harvesting fresh market apples because of fruit damage.

Lack of such technology is a crucial problem for the industry because the cost of manual labor is increasing.

The Washington State Tree Fruit Association (WSTFA) released its forecast for the Washington state fresh apple crop Aug. The forecast is for a crop of million standard pound boxes of fresh apples. This is down percent from ’s million box crop. Washington apples are known around the nation and around the world, but to those of us who live in Washington State, apples are a staple and one of the best foods in the might grow in any backyard garden, but go to any local grocery store and you will see easily five apple varieties.

The season for Washington’s apples runs year-long, from September through August, and the export peaks in the winter and spring.

The volume describes 24 little-known indigenous African cultivated and wild fruits that have potential as food- and cash-crops but are typically overlooked by scientists, policymakers, and the world at large.

MUMBAI: Washington Apple Commission, a body of apple growers and packers from the US, expects to export around million boxes of the fruit to India in the coming season starting September. The shipments, however, would be lower than last year (September-August) when apple imports from Washington were at million boxes of 20 kg each.

Even beyond this, though, is the lack of nutrients older fruit has compared to fresh fruit from a local orchard. In storage, apples and other fruits over time will lose much nutritious dietary fiber.

Also, antioxidant activity in apples decreases majorly and eventually stops after three months of cold storage. To my mind, applesauce is underrated as a flexible, year-round side. Any pork that gets barbecued or smoked would benefit from a complement of .For organic apples, Washington State produces over 90% of the fresh product in the country, according to the USDA.
