The Washington apple crop is expected to bring larger apples to the marketplace.

Harvest should begin in early August, with fruit peaking on 88s, 80s and larger, according to a news release from Yakima, Wash.-based Domex Superfresh Growers.

“The one thing that we all know in farming is that nothing is final until the fruit is off the tree and things can always change over the next eight weeks, but at this point unless something much unexpected occurs, large sizes should be dominant,” Howard Nager, Domex’s vice president of marketing, said in the release.

Promotional volumes of Domex apples should hit two weeks earlier than last year, ensuring abundant Labor Day promotional opportunities, Nager said.
