We could make a rather profitable business here Eric. I paid $20 for this bushel of apples, which I know is a very good price. There are around 90 apples in this box, and with your $5.00 an apple offer we could all retire from the profits in no time!
I do not know since I stopped eating apples a while ago. I had read about apples and grapes being two fruits which contained - or held onto - a certain poison or disease. I do not remember which. It was a while back since I read it.
Well, you have to take my location into consideration. I live 2 miles away from 4 apple orchards. That being said, I pay 20 to 25 dollars for a bushel of apples. I pay 10 to 15 dollars a bushel for drops. Drops are on the ground, and best used in apple sauce. Some of the apple orchards I have been to charge by the type of apple vs. a straight bushel price. I would imagine the farther away you get, the higher the price due to shipping costs.
