  • Fig Hunting Adventure

    Decided to look around the city of Exeter, California, I reside there. Road my bike into some alleys and found 2 new trees. They appear to have Kadota like leaves. I am hoping that it is another variety, maybe a Strawberry Verte type fig. Will look to contact the owner when I can. I also photographed a Black Mission. (Note to Myself: alleys have dogs...LOL )
    You may only view thumbnails in this gallery. This gallery has 5 photos.

            Armando,
            I was up in your area for a wedding last fall. It was in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada Mountains east of Fresno. Afterwards we drove through Sequoia National Park and out through Exeter. I waved as we drove through...did you see me?
            I played my usual "spot the fig tree" game, which I usually play while driving. I had a great time, since in California you get to see fig trees growing wild in gulleys and dry stream beds, not just people's yards. If I didn't have a car full of people, I would have stopped for some samples!
            (Note -- non-fig-lovers don't like it when you play "spot the fig tree" while driving.)

              Jim - too funny. I spot fig trees, beehives, gardens, even go birding while I'm driving. My wife always yells at me. Sometimes, she even admits she saw a hawk AFTER we passed because she didn't want me looking away...

            i love to hunt for figs but i just feel a little strange asking to try their fig tree. not many fig hunters around here. people sort of @@@@ and eye and you and give you that look of "what the ??" last year i foung two real great figs out of about sixty. the rest just had that melony taste. suprisingly, there are tons of figs growing around all over here in the pacific northwest. i thought they didn't do well around here because i assumed they needed more heat and sunshine. i love the feeling when you are hunting and trying so many that are not so good and then you find THAT tasty one. what a feeling! happy hunting

              My brother came back from the San Luis Obispo and Pismo and told me he spotted some fig trees. I hope one of us finds the next Gem.

                  Armando,
                  It looks like I'll have some relatives on my wife's side settling down in Fresno, so this burger/soda thing could actually happen some day ;-)
                  Cheers!
