Cider Apples

It is impossible to accurately predict what the price of traditional cider apples will be in the future.
 
Currently the price of Dessert Apples range from 9  to 25 cents a pound for top grade.
Cider Apples on the other hand are going for $1.35  to $2.50 per pound depending on variety demand.
 
So what will it be in 2016? 2017? 2018?
 
Well with demand for cider apples growing faster that supply, I can only guess it will continue to rise for the foreseeable future.  
Estimates say it will eventually peak at $2.75 per pound and eventually settle settle out at $1.25 per pound.
