The apples we produce are fresh and juicy. The apples are rich in fiber, vitamin C and various other antioxidants. Studies show that eating apples can have multiple benefits for your health. We have different varieties and types of apples such as Royal Delicious apples, Golden, Granny Smith, Red Gold, Rich Red, Red Delicious, Galas and many more. Himachal is widely known for delicious red coloured apples. Apples are grown across the hill state. However, upper parts of Shimla district, including Jubbal Kotkhai, produce 70 per cent of apple produce in Himachal. 

Planting of apple trees typically occurs during the winter months, with farmers preparing the soil and planting saplings. Adequate irrigation and fertilization are crucial during the initial stages to ensure healthy tree growth. Additionally, farmers employ various techniques such as pruning, thinning, and pest control measures to maximize yield and quality.

Apple pruning is basically done in the winters. This is a horticultural practice involving the selective removal of certain parts of an apple tree, such as branches, shoots, or buds. Pruning is an essential aspect of apple tree maintenance. Pruning is carried out during the dormant season, typically in late winter or early spring, when the tree is dormant (period of rest for the trees) and its growth is minimized. Proper pruning techniques include making clean cuts and avoiding excessive pruning. Pruning is essential to minimize stress and maximize the benefits to the tree.

Our orchards have various varieties of cherries. The cherry season starts from April onwards. Cherry contains Vitamin ,C,A and K. The cherries we produce are natural and organic. The cherry season Starts from April and we start taking orders from March onwards. We select cherry varieties suited to the region’s climate and soil conditions, such as durone nero, merchant and Stella. Planting typically occurs during the autumn months.

Cherry trees require regular irrigation, especially during the fruit development stage so that enough moisture level is maintained. Additionally we apply measures to protect the delicate flowers and young fruit from weather conditions, such as hailstorms and frost, which can pose significant risks to cherries. 

In Himachal Pradesh, Shimla, Kullu, Kinnaur, and Mandi practice cherry cultivation. These areas have suitable temperate climate and well-drained soil, providing an ideal environment for cherry trees to grow. 

The cherry harvest in Himachal Pradesh begins in late spring to early summer. We carefully handpick the cherries, ensuring careful handling to prevent bruising and damage to the fruit. Harvested cherries are sorted based on size, color, and quality before being packed into punnets or boxes for transportation to markets. Post-harvest handling play a crucial role in maintaining the freshness and quality of cherries. Rapid cooling and storage in controlled environments help extend the shelf life of the fruit. Many farmers in Himachal Pradesh have adopted modern cold storage facilities and transportation methods to ensure that cherries reach consumers in optimal condition.
