Junie's Place: Sad But true...

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!!

Your problem with the oranges is truly sad. When we have tried to can Michigan apricots for the last three years. We found that after a warming trend in January the frost had had ruin the crop.( We don't raise them but try to use produce from our home state.)

Darn...I was wondering how your oranges had fared with the frost you had not long ago! That really is such a shame. I didn't realize that they turn sour if affected by the cold, I thought they would just rot. See, I learn something new every day:-) xoxo

Thanks, all of you!

Yes, it was a big disappointment to lose the fruit.
