"Prunetucky" is the nickname given to an hill country in North Monterey County, California east and west of Highway 101 between Prunedale South Blvd and San Juan Road.
This unincorporated area of Monterey County is officially known as Prunedale because plum trees were planted by the area's early settlers around 1900.
However, trees died soon after due to poor irrigation and fertilizer, but the name Prunedale stuck.
The name "Prunetucky" refers to a hillbilly lifestyle there at odds with the typical "Sunny California" lifestyle of people in the surrounding areas.
