Street Fruit

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…

We also managed to find Kumquats, Loquats which I put into a fruit salad with Pomegranates.

We also found some Pomelo grapefruits, and limes…

It took us a few hours to collect two bags of fruit, saving us close to $25 at least!  Freshest thing you can eat!!!  8 7 6 5 4     10
