Maryland apple season is in full swing

Maryland apple season is in full swing, with 62 percent of the crop harvested. Maryland has 1,897 acres of apples on 171 farms.

Those farms produce everything from Golden Delicious and Macintosh to unique varieties such as the Spencerville Red, according to a news release from the Maryland Department of Agriculture.

“Maryland orchards are among the best in the country,” Maryland Agriculture Secretary Buddy Hance said in the release. “It’s just hard to beat a local Maryland apple.”

Fresh Maryland apples can be found in many grocery stores throughout the state. Many pick-your-own orchards offer a chance to spend the afternoon gathering apples.

Consumers of all ages can benefit from an apple a day. Not just a delicious and healthy snack, apples are full of complex carbohydrates, vitamin C, potassium, calcium, iron, vitamin A, phosphorus, thiamin and magnesium. Apples do not contain fat, sodium or cholesterol. With only 80 calories per apple, they fit in perfectly with a healthy lifestyle, according to the release.
