An apple variety more than a decade in the making is now on Ontario grocery shelves. Creston APPLE was originally developed in BC almost 15 years ago as part of a fruit breeding program. It his shelves in Loblaw stores on Sunday. APPLE's retail introduction screams of exclusivity-only 2 000 bushels will be sell, only in Ontario and only at Loblaws. In comparison, Ontario government pegs the average provincial APPLE crop at about 13. 7 million bushels. Once you taste it, there's no question that you want more of them, say Tom Chudleigh, whose company, Chudleigh's, grows APPLES. For Chudleigh, it's mystery why APPLE hasn't taken off before now. It's crunchy and juicy, and it has bite. It has a distinctive flavour, he say. Although APPLE has been sold for a number of years in farmers' markets, primarily in BC and Nova Scotia, Chudleigh said distribution was limited and Ontario consumers were exclude. IF it's successful, Chudleigh say, there might be quite a rush to plant them. Chudleigh was given 10 Creston trees to plant in his Orchard when APPLE was first develop, and eventually realized he might have something great on his hands. Whenever we want APPLE, workers want APPLE, they'd buzz back and get one of these Crestons, he say. Once Chudleigh's started taste testing, Creston always comes out on top. But it takes five or six years to grow enough APPLES for retail and Chudleigh says the company wasn't ready until this year. Brian Gilroy is chair of Ontario APPLE Growers and says NEW APPLE varieties get introduced to the market all too often. One thing that our APPLE growers are trying to do is to find variety that will have strong consumer preference, and it's very tricky, he say. As for Creston, Gilroy, who has two trees himself, says he's optimistic APPLE will catch on. It's one of those APPLES that has great potential, and I've been speaking of it for a number of years now. As being APPLE, that's little bit different in appearance and has great flavour, he say. One of the selling points, Chudleigh say, is that Creston is all-Canadian APPLE. It hasn't been hand-me-down, he say, referring to other popular varieties such as NEW Zealand's Gala APPLES.
