About Filoli's Orchard
Filoli’s 7-acre Gentleman’s Orchard was a vital component of William Bourn’s vision of a self-sustaining estate. A feature of many American country houses at the turn of the century, a Gentleman’s Orchard is a collection of fruits grown for pleasure rather than for commercial production.
The Bourns originally planted their orchard with 1,000 trees, including apples, pears, plums, apricots, walnuts, figs, and quinces. About 115 remained when the Orchard was restored; today, it holds more than 500. Filoli continues to preserve this historic collection that includes rare and historically significant varieties. See them all at Orchard Days this fall!
What do you do with all that fruit?
Please leave your fruit baskets and picking equipment at home. We want everyone to have a chance to enjoy the beauty of the Orchard. Rest assured, Filoli fruit does not go to waste! Click here to learn more about the fate of Filoli fruit.
