Fruit hunters

Wouldn't it be fun to grow more fruit?



Alas, not in coastal gardens. Not yet, anyway.

You can find all kinds of unusual fruit in San Francisco's ethnic markets. Someone brought a durian to my plant ID class. It was rank and I couldn't bring myself to taste it. My friend who went to a Catholic school in Vietnam said the nuns made the students kneel on durians when they misbehaved. Ouch!

Via.

There's a nice post on walking the streets of Berkeley looking for fruit trees over at the local ecologists blog...

Yea, if I can't get it past my nose then no dice. My dad used to "enjoy" limburger cheese just to gross me out. Ick.
