OTTAWA PRAISES
B. C. APPLES
Those who are sometimes inclined
to criticize the Okanagan Valley apple pack may find it interesting to
read the following editorial from
the Ottawa Journal of recent date.
This newspaper says "as a rule the
specimens that are large and sound,
carefully picked and graded and
packed, come from British Columbia." The full comment follows:
"A reader of this paper tells us he
has been looking into the apple situation, from the consumer's point
of view, with results that were annoying if not surprising. He wanted
to buy good Ontario eating apples.
At a number of stores he found nothing but Ontario Macintoshes,
which were supposed to be No. 1
but actually were poor, scrubby
specimens, many of them small,
bruised, dirty and untempting.
"On   the   other   hand,   says   our
(informant, the oranges displayed
everywhere were uniform in size according to their grades, clean, well-
colored—and he says most people
were buying oranges.
"It is an old grievance, and well-
founded. There are shops, of course,
where good apples can be had, but
as a rule the specimens that are
large and sound, carefully picked
and graded and packed, come from
British Columbia. We have not the
least objection in the world to B.C.
apples, but it is curious, to say the
least, that it should be so difficult—
in fact it is impossible—to find Ontario apples of comparable quality
in the province where they are
grown.
"Perhaps the good apples are exported, and our own people must
be content with a lesser quality—
or eat oranges. If that is the case
the soundness of such a policy may
be questioned. It is important, of
course, to develop external markets
for our products—but there is a big
market right at home which would
buy first-grade Ontario apples if
they were to be had."
