Someone told me this past weekend that all organic apple farms spray their apples with fish oil instead of the chemicals that are used in non-organic farms. I've searched Google and it looks like some people recommend it as a method of keeping bugs off the apples.

  1. Is this true? Are most/any farms doing this?
  2. Does anyone know a particular farm/brand of apples we can buy that doesn't use this method?
  3. Are any other fruit sprayed with fish oil?

I was at the Comox farmers market yesterday and talked to the guy from Snowy Mountain Organics. They grow organic apples and said they never spray the apples with fish oil. He also said that he has never heard of any farm doing this. Hopefully he is right and this is just a false rumor.
