    Important Note:

    The information are for reference only, to be used as a guide for itinerary planning. Weather condition may affect fruit season.

    Please check the farms’ website or contact them to confirm that the fruits are ready for picking prior to making your way there. We made the ‘mistake’ of heading to Jiangmayuan for fruit-picking without doing so, and we sure don’t want you to repeat that.

    There are some smaller farms, which may also offer fruit-picking activities. If you prefer smaller establishments, ask your drivers or minsu owners for tips.
