apple maturity for 2013 #148042

Asked August 19, 2013, 4:15 PM EDT

In General, are apples matuing earlier thanĀ  their "usual" date on the charts?
I have five varieties ( Snow, Ashmead's kernel, TYompkin's kKing, Holstein, and Mac) and they appear to be "ahead of where the charts say they shoud be"

Yes, apples appear to be a little ahead this year MSU Extension has predicted the apple harvest dates for major varieties in several locations. You may want to compare these dates to what you see.
