TOP TIP: For the best tasting fruit, pick it ripe.

Most fruit you buy pre-picked is harvested just before it’s ready so it will last longer in the shop. Picking your own means you are in control of quality and can pick fruit which has fully ripened on the plant. This allows the natural sugars to develop, which improves the flavour.

The availability of different fruits will vary so please check the list above to see if your chosen fruit can be picked today. The information provided is updated regularly throughout the picking season.

Picking Tips

Containers are provided with a bag to take away. Look round before starting to pick as the best fruit is often further away and many pickers start at the nearest point.

The availability of fruit is not guaranteed, this can vary according to the time of season, time of day, weather and number of customers. Please check we are open before you travel.
