Guess theyre called pecks and half-pecks. Everything is well marked and large enough you dont need reading glasses. Prices: 16/bushel 8/half-bushel Small apples: 6/half-bushel Seconds or culls: 7/bushel You have to get them from the factory, which has a loading dock that makes it easy to load your vehicle, as the cashiers are ill informed of the price. They will try to sell you the small apples at 6/half bushel. Everyone is very pleasant. Two cashiers. They do a brisk business. You can buy by 10 bushels at a time. Didnt ask about any quantity price break."
