Lyudmila Pilipko came from the Irshava region with her family. She said: they collected three bags of apples. We did it in an hour.

“You see the apple that you want to pick,” said Lyudmila. – No one walks, does not lead by the hand: you can only vomit here, but do not vomit there. Eat as much as you want, tear as much as you want. Want: collect from the ground or climb. Here they gave the ladder. There is no such thing when you think that you will either buy dry on the market, or not tasty. And here you try, like it – you tear. It’s great”.

Anyone can come and pick apples. They have to be paid for. In the open garden, according to Stepan Paladi, there are about 20 varieties of apples, both summer, autumn, and autumn-winter. The collection of the latter will begin in October.
