Sunrise apples are one of the first varieties to be harvested each year. That’s why many people refer to them as “summer apples.” The Sunrise rose out of the Okanagan valley, being yet another delectable tree fruit from the Pacific Agri-food Research Centre in Summerland.

They don't keep as long as other apples but that's okay because they are fantastic fresh eating as well as great for homemade apple juice.
