Are people allowed to pick their own peaches?

Question: 

Are people allowed to pick their own peaches?

Answer: 

No, we do not allow people to pick their own peaches. Peaches and peach trees are much more fragile than apples. The fruit must be handled very carefully or they can be easily bruised and damaged. The wood of a peach tree is much weaker than that of an apple tree causing limbs to break easily if climbed. We open up various blocks of apples to pick your own throughout the harvest season usually beginning the second week in September and ending the third week in October.
