Tree Fruit Week starts at Wenatchee Convention Center

Tree Fruit

Tree fruit growers and researchers started three days of presentations and discussions at the Wenatchee Convention Center. Tree Fruit Week started today with the focus on Stone Fruit. Tomorrow is NCW Pear Day; and Thursday is NCW Apple Day.

On Apple Day, researchers will discuss their findings on growing newer apple varieties, like Cosmic Crisp and Honey Crisp. Both Pear and Apple Day will have sessions focusing on fire blight, a disease causing serious problems for growers in our region.

Stone Fruit Day and Pear Day each run from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., while Apple Day is from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. The sessions are co-sponsored by the WSU Extension and the North Central Fieldmen’s Association.
