Laura Avery chats with David West of Clearwater Farms, who explains why winter and summer are the worst time for mushrooms. He's waiting for April when morels will come into season but for now he has Black Trumpet and Yellowfoot which is the winter version of a chanterelle.
David Karp, The Fruit Detective, is crazy about Daisy tangerines. These are a seeded variety but have full flavor and aroma. Look for them at Mud Creek Ranch. Also good right now are the Pixie tangerine from Ojai. Friends Ranch sells these in the area farmers markets.
