That could be.  It is an experiment.  based on this one at the University of
Minnesota.

We have had some fairly hot (80s) temp and the applas seem fine in the bags
so far.

  I you people are using clear baggies I believe you are just going to cook
them.

      I have looked up my original japanese bags. They are bags that are
black inside, and another bag inside it that is a green bag that will let
some light in when it is time to take off outer bag. But through both there
is a slight slit which goes through both ends.

     I plan to copy an try to put all this information if people are
interested.

  I found ordinary Baggies Sandwich bags at Wal-Mart. They had twist ties. I
  think they were $1.50 for 200. They went on easily and nothing has blown
  off. We have had some real storms in the weeks since I put on the bags. I
  must have picked the right apples to bag, nothing has dropped yet.

  The Karminj de Sonnaville which has a nasty habit of cracking also cracks
  when bagged. That Tree is outta here!

  I never got around to reporting on my apple bagging efforts. That
  includes both sandwich bags and white paper bags. I'm not overly
  dextrous and putting them on proved to be more challenging that I had
  expected. Several people had mentioned using a stapler, so that's what I
  had decided to use.

  We have a tremendous amount of wind (normally and from recent storms),
  so I've lost a number of bags. A number of fruit also dropped and are
  now happily lying in the bags. Probably just June drop, but might also
  be because of damange when I was putting the bags on. The big benefit of
  the sandwich bags is that you can see what is happening inside.

  I just did this on four of my 3-year old apple trees on M7. The thought
  of bagging the 20-year old trees (Jonathan/Lodi/"senior moment!" on
  something like M111) is way too daunting right now. I'll track and see
  how it goes.

  Reflections: better bagging techniqu e would make it less painful.
  Tie-wraps might have been easier, but I didn't have them available and
  did have a stapler available. Given the work and the fact that I'm not
  in prime organic country (see Ed. Fackler's numerous comments about
  trying to be organic in Indiana), I may just return to my low spray
  system: 3 sprays total through the end of June, then sticky red balls
  (Tanglefoot, Stickum, etc.) for the rest of the season. When I did that
  before, I got 90% acceptable crop.
