With summer officially behind us, Chiles Peach Orchard welcomes a new time of the year—apple and pumpkin season!

Orchard visitors are invited to pick your own apples and pumpkins now through November or stop by the Farm Market for fresh, ready-picked fruit. Have a craving for a specific variety? Be sure to check our fruit availability guide.

Apple and pumpkin picking is the perfect family outing and a relaxing way to enjoy some fresh air with a group. Take in the scenic views while exploring the Orchard and be sure to to collect enough apples for everyone- trust us, they’ll go fast!

With “pumpkin spice” mania all around us, get back to basics with an old fashioned pumpkin or gourd. Pick a pumpkin to cook into your favorite treat or select a variety of specialty gourds for seasonal home decor.

The Orchard is overflowing with a bounty of all kinds of specialty pumpkins all grown at Chiles! Have you ever heard of Cinderella pumpkins, cheese pumpkins, or “monster” gourds? Come see them for yourself!
