Paying More for Apple Cider This Year?
You can expect to pay more for that fall apple cider this year. The western New York apple crop is down by about 40 percent. That means the cost to get the fruit has doubled although the price on the shelf hasn't gone up that much, analysts believe it will be more of a 20 to 25 percent increase on the store shelves. If there's any consolation..the dry weather that may have cut down on the fruit also caused the yield that is available much sweeter. You might want to hurry, since the apples are less in number, production could end earlier than expected as well.
