Prepare to pay more for fresh, homegrown fruit thanks to the Easter weekend freeze.
Ronnie Best of the Farmers Market in Raleigh says there will be gaps in supply and prices will be higher. He says anyone who survived the freeze will be asking a premium price.
The weekend's freezing weather appears to have destroyed this year's apple harvest in Henderson County, one of the largest apple-growing counties in the Southeast.
Experts say growers throughout the county reported a dire outlook for this year's harvest after temperatures dropped into the teens on Friday and Saturday nights. One local grower says it's the worst damage in more than 50 years.
