Helsinki residents have their very own orchard in a fenced and locked garden in Malminkartano. The orchard was originally used by the university, and most of the trees were planted in the 1940s. The orchard was later transferred to the City of Helsinki. The gates to the orchard are opened for special events. In springtime there is a trim-trimming event, when the trees are in blossom the public is welcome to come for a picnic, and in autumn there are two fruit picking events. For more information, see the event calendar on this website.
