Pome Fest – Adelaide Hills
Friday 31st May and Saturday 1st June 2019

Celebrating the end of the apple and pear harvest in the Adelaide Hills, Pome Fest is a two day event that offers a range of different activities covering all things apple and pear.

Apples and pears are commonly referred to as pome fruits. The word pome is a Middle English term meaning fruit, from Anglo-French pume, pomme apple, fruit, ultimately from Late Latin pomum. It was first used in the late 14th century to describe a fleshy fruit (such as an apple or pear) consisting of an outer thickened fleshy layer and a central core usually with five seeds enclosed in a capsule.

In botany, a pome is a type of fruit produced by flowering plants in the subtribe Malinae of the family Rosaceae.
