Dessert King Fig / Desert King Fig, most likely. - (originally understood to be Andersen's / Corky's Honey Delight Fig)

(Click on title to see more info)  Excellent, beautifully luscious sweet fruit.  I acquired this fig tree as a baby-tree from Walter Andersen Jr. in 1992, and have grown it in the ground since that year, and it has performed great all along.   The main crop with Dessert King is the first crop, the June crop, aka 'breba crop', which is typically the most luscious crop, if the weather is warm or hot and not too cool and overcast, and which forms on the previous year's branch growth.

Prickly Pear Fruits (Opuntia ficus-indica)

(Click on title to see more photos) Three different varieties of Prickly Pear (aka Tunas) grown here in San Diego, an orange-ish one, a red-magenta one, and a yellow one.   All very drought tolerant and produce excellent for eating, nourishing and refreshing fruit, if you like Prickly Pear.  Ripens mainly during summer-autumn.   The yellow one is 'Quillota' from the Luther Burbank Farm, which I acquired by mail order.

New York Muscat Grape

(Click on title to see more photos and info)New York Muscat grape, grown in Point Loma/OB, two and a half blocks from the ocean.  Excellent for fresh eating, has very pronounced muscat-vanilla-labrusca flavored grapes (labrusca being eastern American species typical flavor).   NYM gets no disease here of any significance, no fuss, ripens well, no cracked fruit.
