Apple season is off to a quick start

Thursday, August 15, 2013

Growers say picking of Gala Apples began more than a week earlier than usual, and they're anticipating the case will be the same with later-season varieties.

Growers say a big reason for the quick start is the warm weather in the San Joaquin Valley, which is where many apples are grown. Growers also say the color and quality of the apples are good, but they have noticed a drop in size.
