No reason to eat imported apples

It's sad, and ironic, that local apple growers are losing ground to imports ("Local apple growers losing ground," Sept. 28).

The durable industrial apples from Washington or Chile are welcome in the spring, but why would anyone eat them during apple season in New England?

Besides the popular seasonal McIntosh and Macoun apples, many local orchards still grow wonderful heirlooms such as Jonathan, Baldwin, and Opalescent. Some are available nowhere else.

October is high season for apples, and there is no better time to visit an orchard, farm stand, or farmers' market to try some of these authentic - and singular - New England treats.
