It’s the First Day of Summer! Summer is a very important season for #MIapple growers. Apples growing on trees require medium to high humidity, full sun and good air circulation. Growers look to high temperatures to help the apples taste sweeter, and lots of sunlight means beautiful coloring on the skin of the fruit. Michigan summers provide all these important conditions, making our state the place where apples love to grow.

These are some of the tools #MIapple growers have been using over the past two days to combat frost and freeze damage to apple blossoms. Frost fans, fires, irrigation and other methods are used to keep orchards a few degrees warmer, or insulate the blossoms themselves. Growers have been working around the clock, with special attention paid to the early morning hours, to protect their fruit. They are still working on assessing the impacts of the cold temperatures, but we do know there will be fruit. This is NOT a repeat of the bad year a few years ago. We will be sure to keep all friends of Michigan Apples updated. Thanks for your support!
