APPLES FOR PROCESSING

Trading is fairly slow for offerings of juice apples. Prices for juice 
apples per cwt. at mostly 9.00 delivered.  Tablesorts and eliminators 
from fresh-pack lines range from 14.00-15.00 per cwt. Processors are 
offering 20.00-21.00 per cwt. for tree-run preferred varieties out of 
CA storage for sauce and slicers.  The Michigan Processing Apple 
Growers Marketing Committee did not negotiate a minimum juice price or 
for undersize process apples for the 2018 season.
