Sad But true...
After 3, or maybe 4, nights of freezing temperatures recently we are left with about 20 trees of wasted citrus fruit!
At first I was optimistic, thinking if the fruit didn't immediately fall off the trees it must be ok. ( A lot of the fruit fell-a lot is still hanging!)
And it did seem so at first... with the fruit we sampled...but a couple days ago I again started to squeeze some juice and discovered that, although the oranges appear ok and are still juicy, the juice is sour! :(
The oranges are ripe in mid Nov and so we had fruit for the holidays and onward for a few weeks!
...but . .. Geesh-I sure am sorry we lost all these trees full of fruit! Several of our neighbors and relatives were also enjoying that fruit- especially the Honey Bells!
NEXT time I'm gonna eat those oranges
as fast as I can!!!
What a bummer!!
