What have you eaten off the street lately?

I'm not talking bacon-wrapped hot dogs...I mean, what fallen fruits have you tried lately either from trees or on the ground. I've been trying to sample things as I walk around my neighborhood and lately I've had:
a great pomegranate sitting on the ground with just a small crack
my first cactus fruit -- carried it home in a kleenex, beautiful fuchsia color inside, flavor a bit insipid
carob pod -- lots of carob on the ground in Silver Lake right now, first time I chewed a whole one instead of eating a carob candy bar or something -- pleasantly bready taste

I'm looking forward to rain because I know a yard where morels grow from cactus.
I've also sampled nasturtiums, fejoia fruit and flowers, guavas, kumquats...there's a lot of stuff growing in people's yards in L.A.
