Orchards to Sample Fruit Fruition Shares:

 Note: We do not mean to suggest these orchards bought their trees from us; rather, if you are wanting to taste fruit before you decide to buy a tree from Fruition or anyone else, stop by these farms!

These Orchards share so many more heirloom and modern varieties than we can dream of so truly, don’t hold back in trying them all.

Also, if you have go-to orchards offering a diversity of delectable varieties that are not on this list, in the Northeast or beyond, leave a comment below! We’d love to shout them out, too.
