Summer in Sataf

It is a well known secret that in the terraced slopes of Sataf,  10 km west of Jerusalem, indigenous fruit trees varieties are cultivated.  In season, the fruit cling to the trees and eagerly await to be picked and eaten free of charge; sweet, juicy and succulent figs in all shapes and colours, sweet and sour plums the size of cherries, wild prickly pears, bright clusters of sour sumac and the intoxicating anise scent of wild fennel flowers. 
The real secret is knowing where to find them...just follow the purple fig road.
