Cancelled due to COVID-19:
Aug 24, 2020. look for UBC Botanical Garden website for sales of apples, apple trees and apple juice.
Saturday and Sunday, October 17 and 18, 2020, 11 am to 4 pm. run by the Friends of the UBC Botanical Garden (FOGs), 6804 South West Marine Drive, Vancouver. B.C. Apples for sale, Apple trees for sale, apple tasting, all sorts of things associated with apples!
The Friends of the Garden have sold an average of 36,000 pounds of apples each year and 250 apple trees.
The B.C. Fruit Testers will have a display of apples grown in south coastal B.C., grafting workshops, cider-making demos, pollination and bee displays, apple identification (bring six good apples picked from the sunny side of the tree). Apple identification is very difficult with about 6000 apple varieties grown world-wide. We know the varieties which were grown locally here prior to World War II. We may have to keep your apples and take them to a workshop we will run to identify the ones we could not identify at UBCAF and we may not be able to identify them.
