Drought means smaller apples in Illinois
ROCKFORD – The owner of a Rockford apple orchard said the drought means apples will be smaller this season.
Pat Curran owns Curran's Orchard and he told the Rockford Register Star that his trees need more water before late fall. Curran said the trees are stressed and will have smaller apples. Curran said orchards across Illinois also were hurt by a string of freezing temperatures in mid-April.
Curran said smaller apples will be denser because they don't have high moisture content.
