40C in high summer is not unusual for Osoyoos. We lived in Penticton for
several years in the 1990s [just a hop and a skip north of Osoyoos] and
35C, with ~20% humidity or less, was quite usual. Winters could run down
to -25C, again with little humidity, and did so often.
Back in the early 1990s peach and cherry orchards were everywhere to be
seen. Since then the fruit trees have largely gone and have been
replaced with vineyards. Red and white wines from the south Okanagan
valley are every bit as good as anything coming from California and Oregon !

Wouldn't BC be too cold for peaches? Even apples and pears have difficulty
with freezing in spring.
Southern BC can get quite warm. They have an almost-desert there (the Osoyoos).
