Orchard Visit : Juicy Pears In Akita

Apart from having a ball of a time picking grapes at Kagaya Orchard/Farm, we also enjoyed our time seeing pears on trees for the first time! Of course we've seen pears before, but we always see the fruit in the supermarket aisles and not still attached to a branch.

Anyway, read also our post : Day 4 in Japan - Fruit picking in Akita and yummy grapes.
Pear, pears, pears and more pears!
Two poor abandoned pears nobody wants.
Raimie trying his hand at pear picking. Every single pear we picked was sweet and juicy. Mmmmm... yummy!

Would you visit a fruit orchard in Japan if you go vacationing there? We highly recommend it!

If in Malaysia, a visit to an orchard would mean looking for durians, rambutans or some local fruits. I kinda miss running around looking for fallen durians in a durian orchard like I did when I was small. Nowadays, the only orchard we went to was the Taman Warisan Pertanian in Putrajaya - if you can call the park an rochard, that is.

  2. Lovely pears. I have never seen pears growing trees. Have seen orange trees and its fruit though but those were not the sweet types. They belong to the sour category.

  5. @everyone,
    This orchard we went to in Akita. We got to see not only grapes and pears but they also grow kiwis, apples, persimmons.... different fruits available for different seasons and yet the place wasn't all that big. :)

  10. Nicely manicured orchard. Do they charge by the pound or by the fruit? Those abandoned fruits don't look bruised nor insect-bitten. I wonder why they are abandoned. We have a fruit tree in our backyard, but some critter keeps eating all of the fruit and leaving a trail of peels.

  12. @AVCr8teur,
    The one we went to (Kagaya Orchard) charge by fruits. It wasn't expensive and pretty good value for us. But this orchard is a small outfit and isn't all touristy and stuff.

    I think someone snipped them off, and then decided that they didn' like it and choose another fruit?

    You have fruit tree in o=your backyard! How lovely! The critters must haave enjoyed the fruits. :)
