Apples are the cornerstones of civilization, protecting society from constant attack by marauding bands of doctors. Stock up on juicy tree-ripened ammo with today's deal: for $10, you get a tour of the grounds plus $20 worth of organic apples picked at peak ripeness from Clearview Orchards, a fruit-laden grove located just off Highway 1 in Watsonville. For the apples, the friendly staff will package up any combination of Fuji, Gala, and Johnny Gold apples totaling $20. This Groupon is only valid during the orchard season, which ends November 13, 2010.

Clearview Orchards' apple-packing, tree-tending operation has grown CCOF-certified Fuji apples for a decade. Specimens are picked at the peak of their tree-ripened ripeness for direct sale. The retail area is located inside the packing facility, allowing customers to view the fruit-packing business up close whilst selecting their crisp nuggets. A variety of apple varieties will be available for the plucking, ranging in size from lunch-box small ($1.25/pound) to lunch-crate large ($2/pound). After selecting a winning brood, waltz around the facilities during the tour of the modern fruit stand's ancestor (tours subject to availability, so call ahead).

Properly appreciating an apple used to require one to stalk a wild tree for three winters, becoming truly one with its habits, location, and shadiness. Now that domesticated apples can be found in orchards, the process has become infinitesimally easier. Explore and experience the well-watered machine that is Clearview Orchards before the 2010 apple season fades into winter.

The orchard is open Friday–Sunday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Clearview Orchards

As the autumn air turns crisp, red and green fuji and gala apples grow plump and shiny on the tree branches at Clearview Orchards. These tempting fruits aren’t just pretty; they’re also free of pesticides. Just 10 years ago, owners Mel and Carol LaRussa took over the hilly orchard and replanted all its trees to grow CCOF-certified organic fruit. Now, in addition to packing up its organic apples to send off to wicked stepmothers across the country, the orchard invites visitors to drop by for seasonal picking trips. While there, they might run into the owners’ children and grandchildren, who help out on weekends. Visitors can also pick up pumpkins, turnovers, lavender, or organic honey, before they head home.
