Save to Favorites

ORGANIZATION: ProduceGood

image_20240626155330

Each pick event starts with instructions from a volunteer leader who will tell you the best methods for picking fruit, using picker poles, and discerning fruit ripeness.

We pick oranges, lemons, tangelos, tangerines, limes, and avocados on orchards from Chula Vista to Temecula. We provide all the materials you will need for successful gleaning!

Check out our website to see where we're picking next!
