Arcadia Peaches

Pick Florida Peaches & Blueberries - 115/365 Things to Do

You may not think of Florida when it comes to growing peaches but they do grow here.  About an hour north of Bonita Springs/Fort Myers areas is the town of Arcadia, Florida.  There is actually a u-pick for peaches and blueberries!  If you’ve never had fresh-fresh blueberries you must go!   My first taste was at Sun Harvest in Fort Myers.  They had brought in fresh blue berries. One bite and I was sold!  The same with the peaches.

So the skinny on the u-pick is that you have to be on top of their hours so don’t just hop in the car and drive to Arcadia.  There are only certain days that they are open and also, fruits are finicky and sometimes they aren’t ripe when they are ready to open for business to there could be delays.

If you are looking for fun things to do with kids a trip to Arcadia for u-pick peaches and blueberries is in order.  Peaches and blueberries are usually ready mid to late March and last until the end of April. 

When you go wear a hat and sunscreen.  Be sure to tune into their Facebook page to find out what days they are open or you can call.  https://www.facebook.com/floridasweetpeaches/ 

The address is 7347 NE Cubitis Ave. Arcadia, Florida 34266 and you can call them at (863) 990-2369.
