The nut report

Hosted by

Laura Avery's all about nuts at the Santa Monica Farmers Market this week. Jim Russell has a grove of 200 macadamia trees on six acres in Fallbrook, California. We learn how a severe heat wave in June hurt his crop and the backstory to how macadamia nuts ended up in Hawaii. Then, Ken Kennedy explains how water affects the flavors of his English and black walnuts in Reedley. Believe it or not, it's the crows and blue jays that help signal when the nuts are ripe and ready to be picked!
