There are some 7,500 varieties of apple grown around the world. Many of those thrive in BC—especially in the Okanagan, Similkameen, and Fraser valleys. If you get your hands on a couple of Bramleys, bake a pie. If you're so fortunate as to find Cox's Orange Pippins, don't even think about cooking them, just eat them straight out of hand. Ambrosia's are a BC miracle with beautiful juice crunch for salads, galettes, or lunches.
