Pick Your Own at Clives Fruit Farm01684 592664workPick Your OwnClive's Fruit Farm - A Pioneer of Pick Your Own! From June to November..
The Pick Your Own season starts in June with Strawberries. The main variety grown is Elsanta and will be ready around 8th June 2012.
Raspberries start towards the end of the strawberry crop in late June and our main variety is Glen Ample because of its delicious large fruit and spineless canes. We also have a large number of Tulameen and Glen Fyne raspberries.
The raspberries are followed by our relatively new venture which is Cherries. By planting seven different varieties of which the most common is Stella – we aim to extend the cherry season as long as possible.
Pick Your Own Plums start mid-July. The season starts with the deliciously sweet Opals followed by Victorias, Herons, Swan, Jubilee and ends with Marjorie Seedling.
Our Apple harvest starts in early August with the sweet red Discovery. We look forward with eagerness to this crop as it is the first apple of the season.
Come to Worcestershire for your Worcesters – yes, this good old fashioned variety is still grown on the farm, along with our new very popular variety Red Windsor. Other varieties include Vistabella, Gala Must, Royal Gala, Howgate Wonder, Bramley, Cox Orange Pippins, Queen Cox, Russet, Scrumptious, Delba D’estival, Kaly, Spartan Crispin, Jonathan, Jonagold, Ida Red, Falstaff. Our recent orchard also includes Braeburn (so look out NZ!).
The optimum picking dates for storage for Cox, Bramley & Gala is approximately the second week in September. This is when most of our fruit is carefully picked and put into cold storage to supply the shop through the winter.
We start picking the Pears mid-August with William closely followed by Conference, Comice, Concorde and Glou Morceau.
“By heck, there’s nothing like picking it yourself!”
For some people it is a trip down memory lane or for others it is a first experience to collect their own Eggs. A must for every visitor to the farm is to taste a truly fresh free-range egg.
We also give advice and recipe suggestion on what to do with your harvest once you have picked it! We even have a recipe book! Upper Hook RoadUpton upon SevernWR8 0SAUnited Kingdom52.064222600000-2.240114400000http://www.visitworcestershire.org/?dms=3&pid=
