Apples, nuts and other fresh fruit and produce are all available from the Alpine Apples sales outlet in Wandiligong. The Nightingale family have been growing apples in the Wandiligong area for over 60 years. What started with a 48-hectare orchard is now almost 10 times bigger with Nightingale Bros now managing around 400 hectares of fruit spread across five orchards in Victoria and NSW. At this time of year all varieties of apples are available while persimmons, a crunchy apple-like fruit, are also in season from mid-May to the end of July. There are jams, oils and honey and if you haven’t had Nightingale’s famous apple juice or their new range of alcoholic and sparkling ciders - which have received rave reviews since entering the market - make sure you do. Wandiful Produce, another farm gate store and seasonal café is just a kilometre down the road and is well worth a look.
