The 2011 harvest season is almost coming to an end. While some of the late season apple varieties such as Fuji and Orin are still ripening beautifully on the trees, most of the other fruits have begun their well deserved winter holiday.
However, while the trees begin their rest, the orchard shop is still buzzing with activities and the staff are as busy as ever. With the fruits now harvested, customers coming to the shop will find their favorite apples, fruit jams and Hamada-san’s famous walnut cake made with walnuts grown right here on the orchard.
The Hamada Orchard Shop is open until mid December. Any tree owner visiting Hokkaido before then, be sure to stop by!
