Washington apple crop projected to be larger than 2019

SPOKANE, Wash. (AP) — This year’s Washington state apple crop is expected to be slightly larger than the 2019 crop. The Washington State Tree Fruit Association estimates the 2020 crop will total 134 million standard forty-pound boxes of fresh apples. That’s just above 2019’s total of 133.9 million boxes. Harvest is just getting underway in the nation’s top apple producing state, and will continue into November.
