GLENMONT, NY – Springtime means more than blooming flowers, warm weather, and backyard barbecues. With this new season comes a premium crop of KORU® apples to round out consumers’ favorite dishes and new seasonal recipes. In light of heightened consumer demand, the Coast to Coast Growers team has increased its KORU® program at large for the year.
As Tim Byrne, of the team’s Special Projects division, recently told me, the company has seen increased production on both the East and West Coast of the U.S. Currently, the company is harvesting out of New Zealand with eyes set on its U.S. harvest later this year.
“Domestic production will really ramp up in 2017 as more trees are being planted throughout the United States,” Tim tells me. “Harvest should start in late September and continue for several weeks.”
