Okanagan Fruit Ripening Dates

Fruit Season Blossom Times & Harvest

Here are all the Okanagan fruit ripening dates to help you get the best farm fresh fruit while you're here!!

Keep in mind, harvest times are general guidelines, and blossom times are average, and weather dependent.

Cherries are the first fruit to harvest; early June in the South Okanagan, Osoyoos area, and the fruit growing season finishes with apples in late fall.

You can find many different varieties of each fruit, and harvest times overlap by a week or two, so you have a good choice.

It's always a good idea to call ahead a week or two before harvest time to ensure fruit is ready for picking. You can find a list of local u-picks and farm fresh markets here.

If you prefer not to pick your own fruit, most local markets sell baskets and bulk, but the price of fruit will be higher, especially at the beginning of harvest.
