There is, perhaps, no quainter activity than apple picking. And there is no better place for apple picking than the hills of Tehachapi. A host of apple orchards pepper the area, attracting visitors far and wide to pluck the perfect pie pair. Kolesar’s Orchard is a particularly popular spot for pie bakers and cider makers. Choose from Jonagold, Empire and Golden Delicious varieties to satisfy your sweet tooth and knock a fruit serving off the food pyramid. While apple picking season only takes place in the fall, you can pick enough apples to last the whole year.
