Organic orchardist opposes nonbrowning apple
Genetically modified apples could soon be coming to a store near you.
Summerland's Okanagan Specialty Fruits, has genetically engineered a non-browning apple.
The company recently applied to the Canadian Food Inspection Agency for permission to plant its trees.
But Linda Edwards hopes the CFIA turns down that application. She's an organic orchardist and is also the author of Organic Tree Fruit Management, a reference manual for organic fruit producers.
She explained her concerns to Daybreak host Chris Walker.
And he took those concerns to Okanagan Specialty Fruits president, Neal Carter.
