Should there be public parks with fruit trees that people could pick?

Asked in downtown Mountain View. Photos and interviews by Daniel DeBolt

"It's probably fine as long as people don't fight over it — probably as long as its supervised."

John Carpenter, Mountain View

"If done well, that could be really cool. I could see it being abused very easily though."

Kevin Reid, Mountain View

"I think it's a great idea because fruit is delicious! It would contribute to a better sense of community."

Nadine Orzechowski, Mountain View

"That would be awesome! That means homeless people would have a free food source!"

Erik Sulley, Mountain View

"Hopefully people would be considerate enough to just take what they need."

Jan Ray, Owosso, Mich.
