Fresh-picked Bartlett pears now available from the interior of British Columbia. Unlike other pear varieties that show little color change as they ripen, the Bartlett’s skin color brightens as it becomes ready to eat. From vibrant green to a deep yellow, this pear is extremely aromatic and the perfect fruit for fall.

The Ambrosia apple is a homegrown Okanagan original, discovered by the Mennells in the Similkameen Valley as a chance seedling. Its parentage is unknown but the original orchard was full of Jonagolds and had previously been home to both Golden Delicious and Red Delicious trees. The Mennells named the bi-coloured apple variety “Ambrosia,” which in Greek mythology means “food of the gods.”
