Kanzi U-Pick at Sanders Apples
Celebrate the start of apple season by picking your own haul of crunchy kanzi apples, followed by a picnic in the orchard.
They say an apple a day keeps the doctor away. And this autumn, you can keep both your go-to medical practitioner and your tastebuds happy, with a trip out to pick your own crunchy, crisp apples, straight from the tree.
Family-run Yarra Valley orchard Sanders Apples is celebrating the start of the new fruiting season by inviting punters to harvest its own red kanzi apples every Friday, Saturday and Sunday from March 12. Bring a reusable bag and you can pick up to two kilos of ripe apples to keep for $12.50. Couples can score entry and two kilos of apples for $15, while groups of up to four will pay $25 for their entry and four kilos of fruit. Tickets are available at the gate.
In amongst the picking action, guests can also enjoy a BYO picnic in the orchard (just remember not to bring in any outside fresh fruit or veggies), while tractor rides can be booked in advance here.
Kanzi U-Pick is open from 2–6pm on Friday, 10am–6pm on Saturday and 10am–4pm on Sunday.
