Looking for Organic/No-Spray Citrus Fruits
« on: November 19, 2019, 10:40:02 AM »
I was wondering if anybody knows of any farms or growers that offer organic citrus fruit or at least organic practice or chemical free citrus in Southwest Florida?

Just tonight at our supermarket's organic produce department, I seen the absolute worst looking lemons for sale that I have ever seen in by entire citrus life.

The best tasting navel orange I have ever had was also the worst looking navel I have ever seen.  It was not shiny, not uniform in color, ugly, and I wasnt even thinking it was going to taste good.  The best looking fruit is also the most sprayed fruit.
