Moran Quoted in Press Herald Blog on Maine’s Apple Crop

Friday, September 13th, 2013

Renae Moran, a tree fruit specialist with the University of Maine Cooperative Extension, spoke about the state’s apple crop for the latest post of the Portland Press Herald blog “The Root: Dispatches from Maine’s food sources.” Moran said this year’s crop is larger than last year’s because the weather during bloom was favorable for pollination. She added that orchards in northern Maine have a lighter crop than southern Maine orchards from poorer pollination weather.
