Ontario Fruit Production
Ontario grows many top quality fruits – because we have the right mix of weather, geography and soils. We grow tender fruit such as cherries, grapes, plums, pears, apricots, peaches and nectarines. Apples and nuts such as walnuts and hazelnuts also grow in Ontario (including other fruits and nuts too). Our map below shows the areas which regions Ontario fruit are grown.
