Officials in Michigan expect a big apple crop this year.

The Holland Sentinel reported today that the Michigan Apple Committee is estimating the state’s apple crop this year will be about 28-percent bigger than average. Denise Donohue, executive director of the Michigan Apple Committee, said they’re predicting 25 million bushels.

Thunderstorms that brought heavy rain and damaging winds to the state earlier this year caused concern among some growers.

Michigan is among the nation’s top apple-producing states.
