Hot Dining: February is Apple Month

Ambrosia apples were discovered in BC’s Okanagan region

Keep the doctor away by biting into Apple Month. Every Feb., the BC Tree Fruits organization encourages folks to learn more about the amazing array of apples grown here. Throughout the month, street teams visit shopping malls and community centres to hand out samples of different varieties, including the sweet, crunchy Ambrosia apple (pictured), which was a chance seedling discovered in an Okanagan orchard. Find an assortment of local apples at stores such as Safeway and Costco, and keep an eye out for an apple photo contest launching Feb. 1 on www.bctree.com.—Sheri Radford
