People can expect to see, touch and taste older varieties such as Northern Spy, Pomme de Neige and many others.
The tour is hosted by Tru-Cape’s Quality Assurance Manager, Henk Griessel and Buks Nel at Oak Valley Estate.
According to Griessel and Nel who co-authored a book on historic apple varietals, “Apples in the early days at the Cape”, available for purchase at the open days and from Tru-Cape Fruit Marketing at R300 a copy, the Kroonappel will be one of the varieties available to taste.
Please note that no seating, bathroom or refreshment facilities will be available in the orchard and people should consider sensible walking shoes and be sure to have appropriate weather and sun protection.
Although the orchard visits are free of charge bookings are via quicket.co.za due to the limited number of people and tickets have to be shown at the gate.
