Persimmon Picking - Redux

  • Dec 9, 2012 · 10:00 AM
  • This location is no longer available

Due to popular demand, we have added another date for persimmon picking!

We had such great demand and long wait lists for the 2 persimmon picking events that Nino at La Primavera Orchard has graciously added another date for our members to visit. 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 early batch of satsuma tangerines available to be picked.

When: Sunday, December 9th, 2012
Time: 10:00 AM
What to Bring:
- Gardening clippers (kitchen shears also works)
- Shopping Bag(s)
- Cash

This event is limited to 15 adults.
If you want to bring your spouse or adult friends, please make sure you add them as a guest when you RSVP. You do not need to add children below 12 years old as a guest, but please indicate that you will be bringing kids in your RSVP comments. The trees are on a slope, so you will not be able to use strollers.

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.

Price:

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

*** 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.

    For those who land here, I ended up going to Kellogg Ranch this past Sunday and we had a blast (I picked 81 lbs.). The owner said this weekend will be their last weekend open for U-pick persimmons.

    I'm so glad to have found this group! I've started taking my little one to local farms but it is always more fun as a group. Thank you for starting this group.

    Shoot! I'm out of town this weekend, but definitely want to go picking somewhere local. Do they do U-picks on other weekends, or if not, do you know of a pesticide-free farm that does?

    Those who were able to attend 1 of the 2 persimmon picking events can sign up for this event. But, if we end up having people on the wait list again, I would like to give priority to those who have not been to either event. Don't worry, I will let you know way in advance if I need to bump you down the list.
