Citrus General Discussion / How do you rate your citrus/ other fruits?
« on: March 15, 2019, 12:58:14 PM »
Since being new to citrus( about 9 years ), I am starting to develop a strong taste for mandarins. Fruits of all kinds that I grow are being tested by the amounts i like to eat daily, mandarins comes in first etc.
Lemons a distant 5 and limes ? I donít grow them, no use for, not even Key/lime pie during my several stays in Key West. My neighbors and friends like my Meyers from my 2 trees, it does work well with fish dishes. I live on the lake and fish are easy to catch. I grow lots of figs, pluots, peaches,pears and a few others.
