Estimates for Top Five Canadian Apple Varieties by Volume for 2017

Estimates for Canada’s 2017 apple harvest are close to last year’s crop with 16.4 million bushels. A historic variety, McIntosh, leads the way in volume. But Gala is in second place.

CCOVI viticulturist Jim Willwerth was busy collecting the first round of grape samples at vineyards throughout the Niagara region on September 4.

A later grape harvest is expected this year in Ontario. Preharvest monitoring tracks key indicators of ripeness at several vineyards in the Niagara Peninsula.
