Best time to find fruit picking work in Scottsdale

Scottsdale is best known for growing a range of vegetables, with the best months from January to June.

From July to December you may be able to find work, but it is not known as a peak season. During these months I recommend you organise a job before you get there, otherwise you may find that there is no work available.

Hops, used in beer production, are also grown in the area, and you can often find work from March to April and from September to November.
