Historical Tree Phenology & Hudson Valley Fruit Production

The historical tree phenology chart, representing the developmental growth stages of apple, differs from year to year. Using the McIntosh cultivar, we can measure the tree phenology to help predict the seasonal development of the early season insect pest complex relative to years past. The updated chart provides a time line reference to aid in timing pest management events from the Mid-Hudson Valley (Highland, NY).

A reference on the History of Fruit Growing in the Hudson Valley of New York highlights the last 300 years of growing apple in the Hudson Valley, changes in variety selection, technologies and regional shifts in marketing.
