Most of our Canadian orchards are outdated with fruit varieties that require many pesticide sprays to survive. For the last 50 yrs farmers have been told by the "ag experts" to mono-culture their fruit orchards with apples only. Why not mix in Asian pears that look like apples but require almost no sprays? Why not plant kiwi vines to climb apple trees and utilize the "non-productive shade area" on the inside of apple crop canopy...kiwis love the shade and add a second higher valued crop to same growing space( Mac apples at 25 cents/lb can add value quickly with growing kiwis selling at $13/lb). New and old orchards can be made more profitable by including the "weird" stuff listed in this section...and the Canadian foodie is anxiously waiting to buy these "weird fruit" locally...and at any price!
We have only limited quantities of some fruit varieties in this section. Order early to avoid the "sold out" sign.
