APPLE PICKING: Los Angeles and Orange Counties

Lately, I have seen so many delicious fall apple recipes on Pinterest that I have been dying to try some out.  That got me thinking.  Why not make a day of it and pick our own apples and make the desserts even more special?  

I have compiled a list of local apple orchards that encourage visitors to come experience apple picking for themselves.

Apple Starr Orchard1287 Julian Orchards Drive
Julian, CA 92036
(760) 765-2431

You can pick a peck of pickled peppers, but did you know you can pick a peck of apples too? According to Apple Starr Orchard, a peck is 12 pounds and you can fill your bag with u-pick apples or pears. Apple Starr even has wagons to help you with your load. Some of the apples here have fancy names like Arkansas Black and Wealthy, and there are five varieties of pears to choose from as well, including both red and green Bartlett pears. A “newer” farm established in 1982, Apple Starr is 100 percent organic and a little-known secret as the location is at the very end of Julian Orchards Drive.
