BC Locally Grown Apples

Did you know that there are more than 1,000 varieties of apples grown in North America and dozens grown in Southern British Columbia?


To help prepare you for apple season, here’s an overview of the apples we grow at Taves Family Farms.  By doing a little research before you visit, you’ll make the most of your time in our U-Pick orchards.  Be sure not to miss our all-time favourite, signature apple– the Jonagold!


From eating to baking, it pays to plan ahead.  If your apple is too sweet, your pie could be soggy, and if it’s too tart and firm, you might scare your kids off of apples for months!

Here’s our apple variety list:

We look forward to welcoming everyone back for another great season of fall family fun! To see what’s available now, and what’s coming up next, see our online u-pick schedule at:
