To have dreamed of an orchard, in Freudian terms, may be a representation of the unconscious mind's manifestation of the Oedipus complex, the orchard symbolizing the maternal figure, nurturing and abundant.

Picking fruit, by contrast, could be interpreted as an act of individuation, a Jungian concept. It signifies the dreamer's endeavor to separate from the maternal figure, to claim their own identity and autonomy. The act of picking fruit may also symbolize the harvesting of personal achievements or the realization of one's potential. Thus, Both of these dreams reflect the intricate dynamics of human development and self-realization.0
