Coming Friday: Apple crop strongest in years

Traverse City Record-Eagle

— CENTRAL LAKE — John King looks at the apples at his King Orchards farm and sees one of the best-looking crops he’s seen in a long time.

“The crop is as close to a 100 percent crop as I’ve ever seen in our orchards," King said. "So far the quality and size are excellent. Last year we had just one third of a crop, and no cherries, peaches or apricots, so it’s euphoric to see the beautiful size of the apples already.”
