Yaaaay!! After rainy and hazy winter, when sun starts peaking out. We came to know about Fresno Blossom trail so we decided to go for a short drive. Timing is salient. Blossoms begins between late February to Mid March. It all depends on the weather, for recent updates follow Twitter or check Fresno County Blossom Trail website.
Download the map from google or get “trail map” at simonian farms (2629 S Clovis Ave, Fresno, CA 93725). Trail begins at simonian farms. Below is image of map
There are no designated parking spaces along the Blossom Trail, other than to pull off the roadside to enjoy the beauty, take photographs and smell the flowers. Since these orchards are on private property make sure you don’t go deep inside.
- Almonds, Plum, Apple and citrus blossoms have white blossoms.
- Peach and Nectarine have Pink to Red blossoms.
- Apricot have Pink blossoms.
Bees are doing its thing – Pollinating. We were here by mid of march, it was a beautiful weather and blooms begin to fall. Some orchards were covered by falling beautiful blooms. Most of the white blossoms had peaked already.
Unfortunately there were no orange blossoms in evidence. Orange trees were along the main blossom trail and were filled with ripe oranges.
Definitely going back to Fresno in summer to get a taste of the fruits and nuts produced from these orchards.
