(UNDATED)- Farmers who grow tart cherries in the Midwest have had one of their worst years.
An unseasonably warm march that caused trees to bud was followed by an April freeze that killed the blossoms.
The federal government estimates Michigan, the nation's top tart cherry producer, lost 97-percent of its crop.
It says Wisconsin lost about 93-percent.
Tart cherries are different from sweet cherries, the variety sold fresh at farmers markets and in grocery stores.
