OrchardsQuebec's orchards put on their best colours when they bloom in the spring. In fact, their beautiful white flowers brighten up the fields of many regions. It's in the Eastern Townships, the Montérégie and the Laurentides regions that you will find most of the orchards of the province, but you will no doubt see some in other regions of the province. The most cultivated kinds of apples in Quebec are the McIntosh, the Cortland, the Spartan and the Empire. The McIntosh is by far Quebecers' favourite and holds more than 60% of the market. The Cortland's flesh is of a bright white, while the Spartan is the crunchiest of all four. Finally, the Empire is by far the most sugary apple grown in Quebec. Most of the orchards allow visitors to pick their own apples when they are ready. Fruit picking is an activity becoming more and more popular, especially with families. When autumn comes, you can enjoy a cool and sunny day to come and pick your own apples and then make delicious pies and apple sauce.
