Today I went looking for fruit. One of the best things about living in Southern California is the street fruit. I’ve been watching a lot of Dual Survivor and it got me thinking. I could use basic survival skills to save money on some of my favorite fruits!!!
Here were the rules we followed:
1. Stay out of the neighbors fenced in yards: We only pick fruit from trees on public property or hanging over fences or walls.
2. If it looks like someone’s personal garden… leave it be as well: If you stand and stare at it long enough someone might come out and offer you some.
3. Don’t eat things you can’t identify: You don’t want to poison yourself…
In a mile in a half radius from my house, we were able to collect the following:
Lemons. +Meyer Lemons
We also managed to find Kumquats, Loquats which I put into a fruit salad with Pomegranates.
We also found some Pomelo grapefruits, and limes…
Tips for next time:
1. Bring a fruit picker. And more bags!!
