Vitazyme on Apples – 2005-Wayne County, New York

Vitazyme boosted the yield of Empire apples in this western New York trial. According to the investigator, “As in 2004 evaluation, in 2005 Vitazyme treated rows again produced somewhat larger fruit size (+5.5%), higher yield (7.4%), as well as an increase in percentage of 3”-plus diameter fruit. Vitazyme treated fruit were also somewhat firmer (by 0.31 psi) and had slightly higher brix levels (by 0.18 brix) than untreated trees. There were no apparent differences in fruit set, nor were any fruit color differences noted.
