How much and how cold to ripen ?
« on: October 22, 2016, 10:30:02 PM »
How much [or how long] and how cold to make satsumas or citrus in general sweeter? I've always heard that cool nights help make satsumas and mandarins much sweeter here in Alabama than the warmer nights in Florida ? I guess the same reason Meyer Lemon gets sweeter with time ? Really everything gets sweeter with more time to ripen ?  Thanks. Tom
