We are excited to introduce a new way to participate in the Great Seattle Fruit Harvest: U-Pick Harvest Boxes! It’s a new pilot fruit collection program that works almost like a reverse-CSA – tree owners collect the fruit*; fill the box; and schedule a pick-up with City Fruit. This is a great option for those of you who only want to share a part of your harvest or who would prefer to collect the fruit on your own.
So how does it work?
- Fill out the U-Pick Harvest Form HERE to request 1-3 Harvest Boxes
- Our Harvest Crew will drop them at your home
- After you’ve harvested, just ping [email protected] and we’ll collect your fruit
It’s yet another way for you to be part of the Great Seattle Fruit Harvest and share your fruit with others in the community. So plan a harvest party with your friends and family, bake a pie or two, and let us pick up the rest of the fruit!
This project is funded by a Seattle Public Utilities, Waste Free Communities Grant.
*Since this is our pilot year we will be focusing on fruit varieties with longer shelf lives only such as apples, European Pears, Asian Pears, quinces, and kiwis, and we will not be collecting fragile varieties such as plums this year.
