With such a beautiful Spring, apple growers are preparing for a fruitful harvest. Last year, the late frost killed blossoms, and the drought that followed didn't help. However, this year orchards are looking to bounce back.
The sudden cold snap that interrupted Minnesota's warm spring five weeks ago doesn't appear to have been as big a disaster for the state's apple crop as initially feared. The frost bit hard the nights of April 9 and 10 while many trees were blooming unusually early.
