Press Herald, Ellsworth American interview Moran about apple crop

The Portland Press Herald and Ellsworth American talked with Renae Moran, a University of Maine Cooperative Extension professor of pomology, about this year’s apple crop. She noted to the Press Herald the crop seems to be as good as it can be considering Maine’s drought conditions. The professor said to the Ellsworth American she has witnessed above average “pre-harvest fruit drop” in the orchards at Highmoor Farm in Monmouth, the University of Maine’s apple, small fruit and vegetable research facility.
