Here in California citrus grows most everywhere. I have 4 trees in my garden: mandarin, lemon, orange, and grapefruit. These are baby dwarf varieties. Three out of four trees are producing. The blossoms wouldn’t hold on to the grapefruit.
To me the taste of cold citrus fresh off of a tree tastes like Christmas to me. When I was a kid, my parents would take us out to the orchards and have citrus shipped to friends and relatives that didn’t have access to fresh oranges. Of course, there were samples for us to scarf down. And who doesn’t love the scent of the blossoms?
Here’s how things are looking.
