"I think the fact that they're not supposed to grow say where I grew up outside Philadelphia. That to me makes them a little bit more magical."

Ross Gay is the man who brought a fig cutting from Philadelphia to southern Indiana. He's also a poet, and reads for us his fig-inspired verse. We also speak with Amy Roche about how to keep a fig tree happy and healthy through winter.

Last week is was paw paws. This week, another fall fruit -- persimmons. Chef Daniel Orr turns some into jam.

And Maria Finn uses the entire fish in her cooking. It's easy, and she gives us tips.
