Organic U-Pick at Discovery Gardens is open mid July through August. We grow sweet Dapple Fire pluots (plum/apricot) and plums. Free samples. See website for U-Pick hours. Come to our Summer Harvest Cooking Demo every Saturday in July and August at 9:30 am. We also have friendly farm animals and nice restrooms.
Discovery Gardens is a hands on agricultural program. You basically rent a garden that we maintain for you so all you have to do is come to the classes and take home the harvest. During the classes you will learn to plant, tend and harvest to maximize production. All the seeds and plants are included. You can choose from heirloom and unique varieties in our Garden Guide Catalog. Our gardens are organically grown.
The program runs from April to September and classes are offered every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday. You may come to whichever class fits your schedule best. For the past two years we have averaged 400 lbs per 100 square ft gardens. (with 508 pounds being the record high) So if you have a small family you may split it with a friend.
See web site for more info.
We are famous for our sweet Dapple Fire Pluots. A pluot is a cross between a plum and an apricot. Dapple Fires have a brilliant red flesh with sweet, smooth dapple colored skin. Though we have other, more common varieties of pluots, the Dapple Fire stands out with its sweet, low acid flavor.
