Picking your own fruit saves City Fruit time and resources, while allowing you to donate your fruit AND time with us. Simply pick your fruit and place fruit into paper bags, reusable totes, or boxes, and let us know to come pick them up! Please do not stack soft fruits like plums, because they can be crushed. We don't want your efforts or fruit wasted!
Please email email@example.com
or call our office line at (206) 922-3967 at least 2-3 days before you harvest so that we can plan when to come by to pick up the fruit. You are also welcome to drop-off fruit at our office.
Don’t wait until the fruit starts to drop to the ground! If the fruit has already fallen, then we cannot donate this fruit to food banks, but we can set aside this windfallen fruit for cider makers who will press and ferment the fruit. We CANNOT accept any fruit that have chunks missing, broken skin, mold growth, or patches that are squishy and/or leaking juice. Donated fruit of this quality will be immediately composted.
