This year many apple farmers around the U.S. are expecting a better crop yield. In 2012 several in New England had to compete with rough frosts that stifled crops over the summer. This year nationwide apple crops are expected to improve by 13 percent over last year. That’s according to the industry group U.S. Apple, which also says many states will see more than their average yields.
