If you want to eat healthier and enjoy a taste of fall with apple products, expect to pay more this year.
Growers call this year's weather a perfect storm when it comes to tree fruits, especially apples. An early spring, frost and hail storm, plus the summer drought all contributed to losses.
In big producer Michigan, the state lost 90 percent of its apple crop this season. That's causing most buyers to ship from the west coast, driving up prices across the board.
"There's nothing I can do. In order to survive, this is what's necessary," Adrian said.
Prices in Adrian's farm store have doubled. He's hoping that if customers know why the cost has spiked, they'll continue supporting him and other hurting growers.
"There's (so) many families that depend on this business to survive," Adrian said.
Don't expect prices to fall anytime soon. Managers at Kroger say they expect apple prices to remain higher for another year.
