There are places you can hand pick your own stone fruit
Stone fruit season has commenced in Perth, Western Australia and while we are still getting some from other states, we are at the beginning of the start of our wonderful season for those beloved stone fruit that so many of us like.

By picking your own, as you do with strawberries you will, of course, get the best fruit and to the ripeness that you require for whatever you are making with the fruit - if anything!

Stone fruits are also known as drupes and are fruits that have a pit and hence the word, stone fruit in their name. They are enveloped around with a fleshy outer area. Stone fruits are generally low in calories, with about an average of just 70
calories per cup of chopped fruit making them a good snack for anyone who is worried about weight. They also contain less than one gram of fat and are full of essential vitamins and minerals.

In general, they are a healthy food or snack for anyone to eat as long as you do not eat too many, which I know is very easy to do!

PERTH MANGO FARM, WEST NEERABUP
Where: 105 Wattle Road, Neerabup

Well, who doesn't love mango? Yes, I know there are some who do not but to those people - your tastes are not good!

Mangoes are also great to cook both sweet and savoury dishes and you can go pick your own each weekend in late summer and early autumn.

While you are there, you can also have a barbecue, buy things at their farm shop and have fun getting those lovely yellow balls of delish!



CORE CIDER HOUSE, PICKERING BROOK
WHERE: 35 Merrivale Road, Pickering Brook

They are open every weekend in summer for plums to be picked. There is also other fruit available each year as well as a restaurant and more.

This is a stunning orchard and a fourth-generation one who also offer fruit picking adventures in an ideal surround.



S & R ORCHARD, WALLISTON
WHERE: 46 Halleendale Road, Walliston

S&R Orchard is open to the public during two different seasons. "The Pick Your Own Summer Fruits" from December until March, and the other one was in September.

The fruits you can pick yourself now are nectarines, apricots, plums, and peaches.



FRUIT PICKING TOURS
If you would like the fruit picking experience without the hassle of doing the driving yourself, you can organise a private fruit tour for your group of friends, family or colleagues. This will be a great way to do it as the one driver can also have fun if not driving! Enjoy a morning of fruit picking followed by lunch at the local Swan Valley produce. Make your booking here.

Once again, there are not heaps of orchards who are advertising that you can pick your own fruit, however, as in the strawberry articles, there are heaps of people in the hills and the bottom of the hills and thereabouts, all of which will allow you to pick your own fruit.
