Mecklenburg-West Pomerania: The apple harvest season in Mecklenburg-West Pomerania begins

Gutow (dpa / mv) - The apple harvest season in Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania will be opened on Friday (8.30 a.m.) in Gutow (Rostock district) by Agriculture Minister Till Backhaus (SPD). Experts expect a harvest of 33,000 to 35,000 tons, which corresponds to the average of the last ten years. Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania's fruit cultivation consultant Rolf Hornig referred to a chronic rainfall deficit, heat waves and intense sunshine this year.

This prevented an above-average harvest. In dry weather, the fruits would not be as large as in wetter years, Hornig explained. And every missing millimeter in the diameter of the fruit results in a loss of yield of three percent. In addition, there was sunburn damage to an unprecedented extent, dark spots on the apples facing the sun. These fruits could no longer be marketed as table fruit.
