IT’S APPLE PICKIN’ TIME IN TENNESSEE
NASHVILLE – It’s apple picking time once again, and bushels of apples are available for those who want to enjoy a farm fresh treat. Local producers are saying that now is the perfect time to take an autumn adventure and visit an orchard for fresh Tennessee apples.
Despite weather challenges from earlier in the year, Dr. Lockwood, fruit specialist and professor of plant science at the University of Tennessee Institute of Agriculture, stated the quality and size of this year’s apples look good
Apples have the longest harvest schedule of any fruit grown in Tennessee, giving customers the opportunity to savor a wide variety of flavors over a long period of time. You can find fresh apples on farms, at farmers markets, and in Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) boxes across the state.
