- Take a day trip north of Houston and relax among nature while doing a little shopping. Throughout the year, different fruits ripen in Houston. Strawberries start in February and are followed throughout the season by blackberries, blueberries, nectarines, peaches, apples and even figs. In this garden of Eden, you can pick as much as you want and pay by the pound. Tips are even offered to help you find the best fruits. For example, most berries lurk in the middle of the row, and you should look for the ripest ones under leaves. Refreshing fruit drinks and snacks will perk you up while you wander through the orchards.
