Grapes: Pick Your Own at Jerome’s

My family has been picking grapes nearly every year for 20 years at Jerome’s U-Pick Grapes.

Most folks would probably tie in some grape picking with a trip to the Naples Fest around the last weekend in September. To avoid the crowds, I recommend going the week before or after the festival.


Who knew there were so many grape varieties?

You’ll be picking from dozens of varieties, including familiar Concord and Niagara, and unusual Jupiter, Venus, and Mars. Jerome’s U-Pick provides wagons, boxes and sheers on a first-come basis, so it’s advisable to bring a pair of scissors just in case.

From their website: “All of our 20 varieties are available for “you-picking”, depending only on ripeness and availability. Keep in mind, not all varieties ripen at the same time.”

The season usually begins shortly after Labor Day and continues until the later part of October or until the harvest is complete.

Go for the grapes, stay for the view!

Jerome’s is located just south of the Village of Naples in the beautiful rolling hills surrounded by Cohocton, the Italy Valley, and Prattsburgh. It’s the perfect time to visit as the leaves are just starting to change to their autumn colors but haven’t yet begin to thin out.
