A World Of Apples

(NC) - It is no surprise that if you ask somebody what their favourite apple is, they would be able to name a certain variety with great confidence. Now ask somebody what their favourite top three apples are and it may not be so easy.


People are loyal to their apple choice, but Ontario's apple growers want consumers to expand their apple repertoire. There is definitely more than one apple out there for everyone.

"If, like many Ontarians, you like the McIntosh you may also like the Empire," says Kelly Ciceran, Manager of the Ontario Apple Growers. "A slightly tart apple, the Empire is firm and crisp and the perfect apple for snacking or for making fresh homemade applesauce."

Here are some other tips to help you expand your tastes:
