ACCORDING TO THE Vermont Tree Fruit Growers Association, Vermont produces around 1 million bushels (40,000 pounds) of apples each year. Statewide, pick-your-own orchards sell about 200,000 bushels and grocery stores sell another 300,000. Of the more than 150 varieties grown in Vermont, the McIntosh is the most important, accounting for about half of the state’s entire crop. These apples grew in Addison County this year.
