Thank you to all the tree owners that shared fruit with us this year!
If you are new to City Fruit and would like to share excess fruit with the community, you can sign up your tree with us throughout the year and we'll be in touch about harvesting your fruit in the spring!
Since 2008, City Fruit has stewarded and harvested fruit from public and private trees across Seattle to help make our food system more sustainable and just.
As fall changes to winter, it is the perfect time to rake up any fallen leaves and fruit to slow disease & pest cycles. As we wrap up the year, don't forget to look ahead and schedule your winter pruning between the months of January-April!
Harvest and Distribution
The heart of City Fruit is our harvest season, when we pick approximately 40,000 pounds of fruit annually to share with our community through food banks, meal programs, and farmer’s markets.
Fruit Tree Stewardship
We provide year-round tree care to fruit trees on private and public lands to ensure a bountiful harvest season. These services include pruning, mulching, integrated pest management, planting, and more.
Our Impact In Numbers
City Fruit prioritizes the distribution of fruit to food banks and meal programs in order to support equitable access to healthy, local foods!
We strive to share fruit with community partners located within 2-miles of where the fruit was harvested.
