Pick Your Own

Children love to go strawberry picking and as well as being good fun, it is very educational for them to see how fruit is grown as well as helping them to work towards their ‘5-A-Day’ portions of fruit or vegetables.

We really do take a lot of care about the quality of fruit that we grow and each year we try to introduce new varieties of strawberries to offer our discerning customers subtle differences in both colour and flavour of the berries. This also helps us to provide a continuous supply of lovely fruit throughout the season.

This year, we have some new varieties of strawberries and whilst many people enjoy picking their own fruit, we also have a large selection of ready picked fruit on sale in the shop, with choices to suit all tastes and requirements. We have also adjusted the heights of some of the Pick your own fruits for easy picking.

Strawberries

We grow several varieties of strawberries including Malling Centenary, Sonata, Flair and Malling Sunrise.

Raspberries

We grow both summer and autumn fruiting raspberries. The varieties we grow in the PYO fields are Malling Minerva, Glen Ample, Cascade Delight and Tulameen.

Blackberries

Our commercially grown blackberries are much larger than their wild hedgerow counterparts and as well as being great in puddings and desserts, they freeze beautifully so why not put some in the freezer for a ‘fruit boost’ in the winter months? We grow the varieties Karaka Black, Loch Tay and Loch Ness.

Blackcurrants

Blackcurrants are slightly tart and sharp fruits and are usually eaten cooked in jams, puddings and preserves. We grow a variety called Ebony.

Blueberries

We sell ready picked blueberries and as they a great source of Vitamin C and Vitamin K as well as containing high levels of antioxidants, they really are a ‘super fruit’ in terms of health benefits. The variety we grow here is called Liberty.

Gooseberries

We grow a variety called Invicta in our PYO fields but as they are not sold in many places, gooseberries they are always in strong demand!  So if you’re a gooseberry fan, don’t delay once they are ready for picking.

Redcurrants

In addition to their use in jams, puddings and preserves, redcurrants are also a great garnish to accompany meats and work particularly well with lamb. We grow a variety called Jonkheer van Tets.
