I discovered a reporter, Alastair Bland, who writes about some of his interesting experiences finding and eating figs. I had seen an article or two previously, but after a search, I turned up additional interesting stories. He writes about fig beer and wine, gleaning figs from the sides of roads in California, a story about Wolfskill, etc. Enjoy the read!
