Staten Island, NY. Love this summer fruit, which I just wrote about for the Urban Forager (“wineberries“). Tart, juicy, and thimble-shaped, wineberries taste like a blood orange infused with a shot of raspberry. Because the temps have been so ferocious this month, they seem to have peaked early, but if you hurry, you can still find them from the Bronx to Staten Island.
I recently spoke on-air about the fruit on WNYC’s “All Things Considered,” being broadcast next Friday (93.9 FM for all you New Yorkers). I’ll post a link when it goes up. Until then, here’s a pic of my impromptu lecture on the deliriously delectable fruit for a group of Public Schoolers last year.
