By month’s end — the first strawberries #MadeInFresno will be ready for picking. Blackberries and blueberries won’t be far behind. In May, apricots, plums and other stone fruit will begin to ripen.

As the shutters disappear from the roadside stands, their colorful displays of sun-sweetened delights beckon drivers to stop and sample fruits.  Check out http://www.pickyourown.org/CAfresmont.htm#listings
