Fruit Basket Orchards

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

Oct 12 – Hello to the apple and grape pickers!

Apples are winding down. We still have plenty in the trees for those wanting to pick, all varieties are on (except the pink lady apple). Last week we added Granny Smith and Northern Spy to the mix. This week we will add late Fuji and that is the last variety to come on while we are open for the season. Wow, it is hard to believe that this may be the last weekend.

There are more varieties available in the store for those who would like to make up a box at a great price.

Honey, dried fruit and peach jam are also available, while supplies last. Many of our customers have purchased these items as Christmas gifts.

A note on the Pink Lady Apple, Those wanting Pink Lady apples, can give us your order and when they get harvested, you will be notified. They will be sold on a first come first served based until they are gone.

There are more grapes available for the picking. They continue to be sweet and juicy.

This has been a wonderful season, marked with equally wonderful customers. We hope you have enjoyed the fruit as much as we have!

We hope to see you, perhaps one more time, 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.
