      ChrisMayou reacted to peregrina2000's post in the thread Low-hanging fruit with Like Like.
      As I was writing up my description of my Camino da Geira, it occured to me that I do have one more thing to say about this topic! In late September, I was walking past an apple orchard with a group of women picking apples off the ground. I...

      ChrisMayou reacted to Jeff Crawley's post in the thread Low-hanging fruit with Like Like.
      It depends of country and crop of course. I live in Kent in the south east UK - the one time Garden of England. We don't have as many apple orchards as we used to but there are still a lot. Walk through one after harvest time and you'll see...

      Chiming in again as a farmer. If one sees a lot of fruit on the ground around a tree, one might assume the harvest is over or the farmer does not care about these trees. In reality, this drop is most likely due to excessive heat or wind or poor...

      ChrisMayou reacted to peregrina2000's post in the thread Low-hanging fruit with Like Like.
      What we have here are numerous opinions and things that people have been told by others, but no primary sources that tell us what the rules really are. I too “have been told” that fruits from branches overhanging the public right of way are free...

      If it's overhanging the path, i think yes - and i have. If you have to trespass or enter someone else's property (like an orchard or vineyard) no. It is basically theft.

      ChrisMayou reacted to Rebekah Scott's post in the thread Low-hanging fruit with Like Like.
      There were tons of blackberries also on the southern reaches of the Vadiniense last time I walked. I asked a local about picking some, she said they're not popular fruit, they leave 'em for the birds to eat, so I helped myself! I had purple hands...

      ChrisMayou reacted to Raulvamir's post in the thread Low-hanging fruit with Like Like.
      I believe that we are still hunter gatherers. Yet I will respect the laws of the land wherever I am. If I own a tree full of fruits, I would want lots of people to get them. However it would be wrong for me to get fruit from some else' property...

      ChrisMayou reacted to Flog's post in the thread Low-hanging fruit with Like Like.
      Mushrooms.. I've picked, cooked and eaten rebullones or saffron milk caps, in Spain in late October a good few times (they're about the only wild mushroom I can safely identify). Apparently a licence is needed to pick them but nobody told me..😇...

      ChrisMayou reacted to Barbara's post in the thread Low-hanging fruit with Like Like.
      In France wild mushrooms, nuts, blackberries and come to that, snails are available to anyone who finds them, as long as they are on public land. In Spain that may differ. I have often been freely given fruit. I have been told I can pick the...

      ChrisMayou reacted to David Tallan's post in the thread Low-hanging fruit with Like Like.
      I generally avoid picking and eating fruit unless invited. Sometimes, I admit, it is hard to resist but I do. But there is the blackberry (or black raspberry, or mulberry) exception. I might very well have picked those and eaten them if they...
