Each spring, Fresno County explodes into fragrant beauty as the fruit trees begin to bloom. Formed in 1989, the Fresno County Blossom Trail highlights the splendor and abundance of the Central Valley’s plum, almond, citrus, peach, nectarine, apricot, and apple orchards. Set against the backdrop of the Sierra Nevada Mountains, visitors are given the opportunity to enjoy the visual and aromatic experience of Fresno County’s agriculture bounty.
Many communities are represented on the trail including Sanger, Reedley, Orange Cove, Selma, Clovis, Kingsburg, and Fowler. Each town has its own charm and history. Simonian Farms is the official start of the Blossom Trail.
The Fruit Trail which opens each May celebrates the beauty, flavor, and culture of Fresno County. Orchards of succulent fruit literally burst with flavor, making a stop at a tempting, locally-owned fruit stand or Farmer’s Market a “must”. Many community museums and attractions are open along the Trail to both entertain and education visitors.
