fWO Tbe Xewt, Frederick, MA* Monday, November 19, 1951 Poor Market For Apples HAGERSTOWN, Nov. 18 Orefcardists here are wondering whether the poor market for apples this fall forebodes a speeding-up of the trend toward peaches as the major local fruit crop. The apple harvest is nearing its end in this county, which has about 40 per cent o£ the State's peach and apple trees. Most of the fruit is grown in the western end of the county where the apple crop was slightly bigger than usual in amount of production. But two factors--dry weather, which reduced ,the size of the average apple, and a weak market --have played havoc with profits for orchardists. Poor quality apples were going for 50 cents per bushel retail for a while at some orchards Average Price S1.75 The United States Department of Agriculture estimated the average price in Maryland this year at $1.75, compared with $1.95 last year. Early in the harvest season, the Appalachian apple service produced figures to show that growers were losing 56 cents per bushel on Yorks delivered to Martmsburg processing plants. j The picture isn't all black, how-! ever. The Production and Market- j ing Administration bought 16 car- j loads of surplus Grimes Golden apples at $1.70 through its Hagerstown office for iue m «chool ^cafeterias and institutions. Growers producing unusually ime irun j are getting prices to match, like | the apple grower just norih of here who has been selling top quality Delicious at S4.75. But a long range trend away from apples toward peaches has been developing here. The 1925 agricultural census showed 523.833 apple trees in Washington county, with only 296 565 by last year. During these same 25 years, peach trees increased in number from 143.790 to 195,712. In Maryland, as a whole, the quantity of apple tree? has gone down 70 percent and peach trees are down 50 per cent over the same quarter century.
