Pick your own fruit in De Uithof
Published: 20 August 2013 Modified: 20 August 2013
One of the oldest municipal orchards in the Netherlands can be found in Uithof. The first fruit on the trees in the orchard is now ripe and can be picked. Come by on Saturday, 24 August. Everyone is welcome.
The plums have now reached maturity and are ready to be picked. The other fruits (apples and pears) will only be ready in the coming weeks.
Visitors to the orchard may pick their own fruit on Saturday, 24 August. They can use a special gripping tool under the watchful eyes of volunteers. The trees are quite old and are therefore vulnerable. The volunteers will ensure that the trees are not damaged during the picking.
Everyone will get a handy bag and information flyer at the entrance. The idea is not that you take home kilos of fruit. Pick a modest amount so that there is enough for everyone.
The orchard is open on Saturday from 12.00 to 17.00 hrs. It is located at the end of the Uithofslaan behind the maze.
