Author's Notes:
Fruit Harvest Reel is a dance I wrote (cobbled together really) for Dave Kirk & Shelly Jenkins' wedding in August 1984. A touring caller from the East collected the dance from them and calls it from time to time (I thank him for the proper acknowledgement). There are probably a few variants, but it ends up being within a figure (or so) of Tony Parkes' For Those Who Cared.

This dance is from American Country Dances On Line
