Fruit Basket Orchards

Welcome to Fruit Basket Orchards, the only full-service U-Pick orchard in western Colorado.

We have peaches, apples, and grapes. There are even a few elderberries and we will be open Friday and Saturday 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.

For peaches, Gloria and Victoria will be available for picking. I picked a Gloria this morning and it was delicious, such a sweet flavor. I haven’t tried a Victoria yet but I would expect the same deliciousness. As noted last week Victoria is our last peach of the season, with the cooler temperatures this week, their ripening has slowed down. If you are traveling a long distance you may want to pick some of these.

This will probably be our second to last weekend for u-pick peaches. We have a few boxes of Elberta peaches available in the cooler. We also have seconds available. If you want peaches this year, this would be the week to come get them.

Apples are looking great this weekend. We have several varieties available. These varieties include Gala, Cortland, Red Delicious, golden delicious, and Empire in the cooler. For u-pick, there will be Golden Delicious, Red Delicious, Jonagold, Jonathan, Cortland, early Fuji, and Roman Beauty.

Grapes continue to be very good with lots of bunches easy to find and pick. As always we have red and green. These tasty treats will continue until the first freeze.

In the store, we have dried peaches and apricots, peach jam, and honey.

We look forward to seeing you in the orchard.

Our motto is “strive to grow the most delicious, enjoyable, fruit available” and if it grows on our property, we’ll let you pick and take it home.  We grow a little bit of everything, including all your favorite stone fruit (peaches, sweet cherries, tart cherries, nectarines, apricots, plums), raspberries (they are planted), plus 18 varieties of apples.  We also grow table grapes and a few pears.

The store address is 253 32-1/2 Road, Grand Junction, CO 81503 or give us a call at (970) 434-3063.  We accept all major credit cards.
