Washington Apple Crops May Approach Record

WENATCHEE, Wash. - Washington state apple growers say this year's crop could approach a record. The Wenatchee World reports that growers' associations forecast the 2010 fresh apple crop at about 108.8 million boxes, just shy of the record-breaking crop of 109 million in 2008.

Nationally, the total crop is expected to be down from last year, which should help Washington growers sell their large crop. And on the international market, Washington may benefit from lower-than-usual European crop estimates and poor weather than may have affected China's crop.
