This website provides New Jersey apple growers with weekly reports on the apple maturity progression throughout New Jersey. These reports include background color (% red), firmness, soluble solids, and starch index, and are drawn from apples harvested from five farms throughout Northern and Central New Jersey. The data in the reports below is intended to aid apple growers in deciding the optimal time to harvest apples in their commercial orchards.
