Doesn’t keeping them in cold storage for so long help contribute too so many culls?

Probably going to Sun-Rype in Kelowna for juice. Doubt if they are going to waste.
Publisher: Doubt this batch is going for juice its in a dump site – taken away for cow chow and pigs.

What a shame… I and my family shopped at Tree Fruits for our Apples and Pears when it was open to the public… It was local fruit that I could afford for my family. It should be opened again to the public for all culls. It’s very wrong for local fruit go to waste like this.

Hopefully they at least go for compost and not into the landfill. There would likely have been only half that amount if they still had a retail outlet available, hope they rethink the situation so we can once more buy local apples at an affordable price.
Publisher: Agree. BC Tree Fruits could operate a fruit stand all year round and have a series of outlets in Vernon Penticton Kelowna and Oliver. I wonder if farmers get paid for the surplus of apples not desired by the world it seems.

They have a store year round In Kelowna. farmers are charged for cull by the way.
The secret to not have as many culls is to concentrate on quality product
