In the Upper Shimla area, people are gearing up for their annual apple harvest. As the fruit starts developing colour, it has to be picked; packed in cardboard boxes and shipped to the nearest fruit market. Here are few pictures from my apple orchards in Jubbal. We pick Tide-man variety of apples and pears first.

Apples are picked from the orchard and carried in plastic baskets to the grading and packing facility of the orchard.
