FTLComm - Tisdale - Tuseday, August 22, 2006

In almost every block here in Tisdale there is a yard with at least one overloaded crabapple or apple tree.

Many people have just planted the attractive blossoming trees in their yard to create a gorgeous atmosphere in the spring but the reality is that these trees bare a quality and highly desired product.

Crabapples make the very best pies and jellies made from various types of crab apples are a superior flavour that is not commerically available.


Surprisingly there are several varieties of apples that grow just fine in this part of Saskatchewan and farmers need to really think about the economic possibilities of growing fruit on suitable orchard land on the properties.

Growers have discovered that there are domestic varieties of Saskatoons that can produce a nice income and we all know the market for raspberries and blueberries is really attractive. Fruit can provide a really nice additional cash crop and requires very little land to produce a productive orchard.
