There are several Winchester Apples around town. Winchester claims to be the Apple Capital of the World. 12 million bushels are harvested there each year. The first two shown here are located downtown. The third one is at Apple Valley Office Products. The fourth one is located near Clear Choice Printing. The first apple has been around since 1927. The other three were part of the Apples on Parade project. In 2005, 19 eight-foot-tall apples were painted by local artists. For more, see this website. Maps: [1], [2], [3], [4]

Big Apple
Meaford, ON
