Here's How to Visit The Fresno Blossom Trail Next Spring For a Magical Drive
October 26, 2021
As the weather begins to warm up and California's central valley begins to bloom, the Fresno County Blossom Trail is the Spring view we all need. The Central Valley is the hub of agriculture production in California. Fresno County, home of the Big Fresno Fair, is full of sunkissed fruit and nut trees that begin their journey as beautiful blooms in Spring. Time your trip just right and you will find yourself cruising through the orchards among aromatic pink and white blossoms in full bloom.
Whether almond, peach, plum, nectarine, or apricot blossoms, this scenic drive is one that requires your car windows down. The smell will leave you anxious to return in summer for the Fresno County Fruit Trail and all of the produce stands along the way. With California producing over 1/3 of the country's fruit and nuts, this agricultural hub does not only bloom in spring. It also delivers unforgettable views and fills the air with aromatic citrus and floral scents.
When to visit Fresno Blossom Trail
Blossom season is short and dependent on the previous season's rainfall and temperatures. However, the blossoms usually pop in mid-February to mid-March. Follow local updates via Twitter @GoBlossomTrail and the Fresno County Office of Tourism for the most updated information.
You can usually count on 3 weeks of prime blossoms in the orchards. Sadly, by the end of March, most flowers have fallen to the ground due to wind and rain. If you miss the flowers in Spring, you can always return in summer to see the Fresno County Fruit Trail.
