Story outlines why Northeast US apples may taste different this year

Farmers are often at the mercy of the elements. Severe weather such as derechos, flooding, hurricanes and frost can destroy their crops within several hours or over the span of a season.

According to a story by AccuWeather National Reporter Dexter Henry, this year, a dry summer in the Northeast paired with a late-spring frost impacted apple crops across the region. And if you’ve done any apple picking this season, a popular fall activity throughout the Northeast, perhaps you’ve noticed a subtle difference in how apples taste this year.
