Bitter Apple -- 002

Honeycrisp and Baugher

The severity of bitter pit's impact on Honeycrisp production — it ruined nearly three out of four apples studied in 2016 — is what convinced research team member Tara Baugher, Penn State Extension tree fruit specialist in Adams County, to initiate the study. The research is an example of the support Extension provides to agricultural producers.
