I'm in Orinda, which is just inland from Oakland and Berkeley. This worked out to be good timing for me, as just about all varieties I'm growing have something ripe, and none have finished for the season. There are so many microclimates around there that it's difficult to pick the right time. While I think a couple more weeks into August might be a better compromise, Virtex, who was coming up from San Jose, was already winding down with some varieties. In past years, even early September is pushing it for me.
