Wisconsin peach crop is lost while apples see bumper crop

RACINE COUNTY -- Finding a sweet juicy peach will only be found at the grocery store this year.

Apple Holler Orchard reports that a long winter and below zero temps zapped all of the peach blossoms. Not just at their orchard, but across Wisconsin.

Dave Flannery, owner at Apple Holler says, of the 500 trees he has, not one of them produced a single peach. Other orchards report similar situations.

Still there is hope, apples this year did extremely well because they benefited from a late spring. He says he has the largest crop of some apple varieties than he can remember including Honey Crisp.
