In Sicilia, there is a special type of cactus fruit called, ficudinnia. Most of the fruit you will eat in Sicily is fresh. There are fruit trees everywhere. Many people own a farm and are always working on it. It takes a lot of work. If you own a farm, all of the fruits you eat will be fresh fruits that were just recently picked from outside.
My nonna had many pomegranate trees. There was a tree right next to my balcony from my room that I was able to walk out onto the balcony and pick a pomegranate. There were also many walnut trees everywhere. People like to pick the walnuts and sell them.
