Persimmon Orchard Visit

  • Nov 11, 2012 · 10:30 AM
  • This location is no longer available

It's Persimmon Season! Choose from one of two dates.

We will be visiting the pesticide free Primavera Orchard, which is one of our favorite orchards in North County. Some of you have been there before, so you know that visiting Nino's (our host) orchard is a lot of fun and informative. If you have never tasted a persimmon, come and find out what you are missing. Freshly picked ripe persimmons are so much more delicious than store bought ones. Nino will have some samples to taste and then show us around his orchard. This season, most of the persimmons available are the smaller variety. There may also be some larger size persimmons and tangerines available to be picked.

When: Sunday, November 11th, 2012
Time: 10:30 AM
What to Bring:
- Gardening clippers (kitchen shears also works)
- Shopping Bag(s)
- Cash

This visit is limited to 15 people. Increased - now limited to 20 people!
PLEASE BE KIND: DO NOT RSVP YES UNLESS YOU ARE 100% SURE YOU ARE GOING! If you rsvp yes, please show up or cancel your RSVP early so you do not prevent a fellow member from visiting the orchard.


  • Small Persimmons - $ 0.65/lb
  • Larger Size Persimmons - $ 1.25/lb
  • Tangerines - $ 0.65/lb

Questions? Email or call me.

*** Please note - this is not a public u-pick orchard. It is a private orchard and home of the farmer. He only allows group visits by invitation (only our group). So please do not show up on your own uninvited at his orchard.

    After the persimmon picking some of us are planning on going to lunch at Stir Fresh Mongolian BBQ, where they cook your food fresh on giant flat woks in front of you. Everyone is welcome to join us. Please look at their website and print out a coupon for $1 off any adult meal. Address: 17120 Bernardo Center Drive, Rancho Bernardo, CA 92128

    By the request of the farmer, this event is limited to 15 people. Each member can have up to 2 guests. Since this event is currently full, I have a couple of suggestions. 1) Have your friends sign up as a member and then get on the waitlist. Cancellations do happen even though I asked members to sign up only if they are 100% sure they are coming. Meetup will inform those on the waitlist when they move up to an open spot. 2) Have your friends sign up as a member and attend the 11/17 event instead. There are still spots for that date.
