Snowfall in Ontario apple country

On October 19, the province of Ontario witnessed the first snowfall of the season while part of the apple crop still needs to be picked. “Fortunately, the snow melted very fast and no damage is anticipated at this time,” says Sarah Burroughsford with Gambles Produce. “Apples can take some cold weather, usually minus single digits Celsius, without issues.”

“The biggest apple growing areas have not been affected by the snowfall,” added Burroughsford. This includes Collingwood and Lame Simcoe shores. “They have a good crop and very nice fruit.” Overall Ontario apple production is down this season due to spring frost that affected the blooms.
