The Pick of Cape Town Fruit Picking

Please send in your own PYO tips, too!

The phenomenon that is summer fruit in Cape Town – when truckloads of mangoes, berries, grapes and other seasonal fruits are carted to stores and outdoor markets, seemingly on the hour – is something that affords a good day’s frolic.

You can break your back grabbing strawberries by the fistful or strain your neck craning up into cherry trees – tongues and lips stained dark by juicy ripe fruit are guaranteed. Most PYO (“pick your own”) farms also have picnic facilities.

Learn how to share in nature’s bounty at this “berry” brilliant PYO site.
