Moran Quoted in Portland Phoenix Feature on Apple Varieties

Friday, September 13th, 2013

Renae Moran, a tree fruit specialist with the University of Maine Cooperative Extension, was quoted in a Portland Phoenix food feature on apple varieties found in Maine. Moran said the gold rush variety is rare in New England because it doesn’t ripen until late October when it’s often too cold. She also said customer demand for organic apples hasn’t matched the hype and that it demands a lot of extra work and money for lower yields.
