Although several years of commercial experience
have revealed some substantial problems in growing
Wayne, it nevertheless has outstanding potential when
properly managed in the orchard and handled for
processing. Wayne cannot succeed if treated as a
Greening or Baldwin. It requires the use of some
special cultural techniques, as do most standard sorts.
Wayne is in season with Mclntosh and may show the
same sensitivity to tardy harvest or improper storage
conditions. This publication documents the exceptional
processing qualities of Wayne and suggests a
production system for Wayne that has shown promise
at the New York State Agricultural Experiment Station.
