Cold Hardy Citrus / Using up those Citrangequats!!!
« on: October 16, 2016, 05:05:05 PM »
So I finally got some time to take a look at the tree this year. This one always is a great producer. So let's see what we can do with these.

First up, key lime pie or rather, citrangequat pie...
First ingredient, 1 Thomasville citrangequat tree!
   

I picked quite a few fruit, but I still have enough for maybe 3 or 4 more of these..

   

I actually needed less of these than I thought, because they are so juicy. The skin is very thin, but I was able to zest them easily enough.

   

The finished product. And my wife promptly adopted the first slice.

   

BTW, the remnants made an excellent margarita, if you're so inclined. I think I'll use some to make a nice persimmon and peach hot sauce since I have an excess of habaneros and fuyus this year......

Cold Hardy Citrus / First crop of Citrangequats

Finally got a first crop of these and I'm stoked that it survived the past 2 winters and has set fruit. Yuzuquat is coming back strong as well. And my zombie Meyer lemon is speeding up from its resurrection.  ;D

SouthEast Citrus Expo 2014 Mini-Report

This was my first year attending the Citrus Expo. I drove south from Atlanta, and  3 hours later, here we are:

The first thing that I saw was the plants for sale at the front.They seemed to be Camelias and some citrus with baskets of fruit to sample. Mr. Crawford from Loch Laurel Nursery was very helpful in answering questions and giving samples.
