Over deze route
A juicy, fruity kind of route
The fruit-growing (‘Fruitteelt’) Museum in Kapelle is where you set off, with loads of fruit en route, as you pass through the orchards of Zeeland.
Second only to the northern area of the Betuwe in central NL, Zuid-Beveland is a prime fruit-growing sweet spot, known as ‘the blooms of Zeeland’. Come in the spring, if you can, when the blossom is at its most enchanting.
The museum in Kapelle will tell you all about local fruit cultivation, its history, and various different fruit types. The cosy museum café sells local produce, too.
Step into the orchards on this route, to compare apples and pears – a Dutch saying, that – or buy some if you like. The trees are positively laden with ‘em. Come summertime, smaller fruits appear, including raspberries, blackberries and plums.
