Salt Springers are very proud of their apples and the incredible collection amassed at Fulford Hall every Apple Festival is a sight to behold! In 2015, there were over 300 apple varieties on display all grown organically on Salt Spring Island, arranged alphabetically with detailed labels. The task of setting up the collection is performed the night before by a team of about 30 island volunteers, ranging in age from children to senior citizens.
