About NYS Apples

New York State: Growing more varieties than any state – and more apples than any state (except one)

Apples are big business in New York. It’s true – we grow more apples than any state (other than Washington) and offer more varieties than any state. According to the USDA, New York produces almost 30 million bushels annually. New York State apples are grown on about 55,000 acres, in six major production districts around the State:

New York Apple Sales teams with the best growers in New York to deliver fresher apples, greater choice, superior quality and outstanding service to our customers across America and around the world. One of the reasons we can do this is because agriculture and apples are key components of our state’s economy.
