It is apple season!

Do you ever see all of those beautiful apples ripens on apple trees and want to pick them? But don't know if it okay do it or not? And just watch them fall off the tree and rot away?

Well, I later learned to how to legally pick all those nice apples for free! So, on this instructable, I will teach you how to legally pick free organic free-range pesticide free apples!

Step 1: The Important Rule

Okay, you cannot go running out of your house and immediately start picking apples form the trees, you must know the important rule first...

  • You can ONLY pick apples from trees if its branches are growing over or growing in public areas, like along the road, pavement (sidewalk), and areas like that. However, it is illegal to pick apples that are within somebody's property line.

Note: Some people may complain at you if you pick apples from a tree or a branch that is over the public areas, they have no right to do that. However, they DO have the right to complain at you, or call the police if you pick apples that are within their property...

Important note: This rule is used only in United Kingdom, and in most parts of USA, in some states of USA, it is illegal to pick apples from trees in pubic places, check with your local authorities first. Also, I don't know if you can pick apples in public areas in other countries.

Step 2: Gather the Things You Might Need

To go apple picking, you might need:

  • A ladder or steps. Can be used to get the big and juicy where bouts lazy people only picks apples that are hanging low.
  • A Bucket. Or something to put all the apples in.
  • A car. Or even better, a pair of legs if you have any. Used to take you to your destination.

Step 3: Find It!

Now, go for a drive (or a walk) around and find a apple tree (or branch) that is in public areas.

In this case, I found an apple tree between the road and the pavement, and it has lots of nice apples on it!

Step 4: Start Picking!

After you find a apple tree, start picking some of those nice, juicy, sweet, organic, free-range apples! But don't pick too many! Otherwise you will get rotten apples in your house...

Step 5: Enjoy!

Enjoy eating your freshly picked organic apples!
