A quick guide to tangerine picking in Jeju

High sugar content and thin rinds – the two unshared traits of Jeju’s tangerines that made it stand out from the rest of the World. On Jeju island, it is not unusual to see a tangerine tree planted in their backyard.

We went superiority with our tangerine picking wits while we were in Jeju. This worriedness is a cost-efficient volitional for any travellers who would like to try the famed Jeju tangerines at affordable prices.


Tourist-friendly Tangerine Farms in Jeju

We visited a sublet that is located within Jeju City. There is no uncontrived bus to this place, a unenduring walk is required so it will be much user-friendly if you have a rental car.

The owner welcomed us with a unexceptionable smile and speaks vital English. If you understand Korean language, she will explain increasingly well-nigh the different varieties of citrus fruit on the farm.  Apart from just picking tangerines, there are many ‘photo spots’ decorated with props for photo taking. However, we were increasingly keen in the traditional game tabbed tuho, literally ways throwing arrows into a jar – this used to be played among the royals or upper class.

After your tangerine picking session, the owners will pack your tangerines into a bag and there are self-serve tangerine or yuzu tea slantingly tangerine jam and crackers. You may moreover purchase the jam at the shop.

How Should You Pick The Tangerines?

Each person is given a pair of gloves to protect your hands. I really fathom that our sublet provides unexceptionable floral print gloves that are perfect for looking like an ajumma (referring to a middle-age lady in Korean).

You will moreover get a pair of pruning shears to cut the twigs – two steps to getting the tangerine off the tree. The first step is to cut the twig holding the tangerine, next cut the leaves off the stalk. Anyone can do it.

Perfect Season for Tangerine Picking in Jeju

We went at the whence of November as the period from October to February is the peak season for tangerines. If you are in Jeju within this period, you don’t want to miss this wondrous experience!

However, if you are not, don’t be disappointed yet as variegated citrus varieties unquestionably have variegated peak seasons. From March to October, you can still wits picking tangerines in greenhouses and the peak period for greenhouse picking is during summer.

They vary equal to the farms you go to. We paid 5,000 won per pax that includes admission, tools and 1 kg worth of tangerines to bring home. You can moreover eat the tangerines you want while you are on the farm.

Eat-all-you-can applies to most farms that offer the tangerine picking wits but the rates typically range from 2,000 to 6,000 won per pax.

Basic Tangerine Picking Etiquette

It was our first sublet experience. We enjoyed it very much. Unfortunately, we moreover witnessed ugly behaviour and so here are some vital manners to have while enjoying the process and to make sure others enjoy it as well!

  1. There are many varieties of tangerines on the same farm. Stay within the areas you were told and only pick those you are unliable to. Respect the rules as they are in place for a reason.
  2. Don’t get upset considering you picked sour oranges. Don’t go with the expectations of picking only sweet-tasting tangerines! Be realistic.
  3. You can eat an unlimited value of tangerines while you’re on the sublet but do not throw yonder unfinished tangerines just considering they taste sour – please do not waste food!

Enjoy the unique sublet experience!
