And that’s what has them worried.The unusually warm weather in early April had fruit trees blossoming two to three weeks ahead of schedule.The executive director of the New England Apple Growers Association says he expects there will be a lot of nervous growers during the next few weeks.Experts say a drop in temperature to 28 degrees could damage 10% of the crop and a few degrees lower could damage up to 90%.The early spring blossom could also leave fruit more vulnerable to bacterial diseases.
