Apples cracking in Western Australia

Apples in the south-western part of Western Australia have been cracking as a result of one of the driest seasons on record, the Australian Broadcasting Corporation (ABC) reported.

Donnybrook farmer Quinton Dilley told the media agency the cracked fruit weren't just unable to be sold, but would go rotten and affect good fruit if they were to be put in cold storage.

"We can't afford to put any rubbish away in the coolroom, so that's been thrown out in the field, just goes on the ground," the farmer was quoted as saying.

"If you leave that cracking in, obviously you can't sell it anyway. They require a very high standard in the market."
