Growing and processing the Wayne apple
Way, Roger; Cummins, James; LaBelle, Robert; Einset, J.
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.
