Thank you sir! I'm so happy that recordings of the presentations are now being made. I have been 2 of these, and I was always annoyed when I missed one because I was late or speaking to other attendees...

It great to be able to go back and find out what I missed the first time.

In the first video there are a few shots of '1st place' winners, does someone know what they are judged on, what makes it a winner? Like, which features of the fruit is it based on?

I saw a shot of the Taiwanica being a winner, and while I've been intrigued by the fruit (I have a young graft), it's not very popular as far as I know. So I wouldn't expect it to win anything.

I think it's by category.

So if that's the case, then the Nansho Daidai was the best of all the sour orange entries?

Thats Correct.

I made the mistake of not bringing any fruit to enter into the contest for the 2022 Citrus Expo in Beaufort so this year i was determined to have entries of my own.

I submitted 11 specimen this year of all different categories and was happy to take home 2-Third Places and 2-First Places along with winning best in show my Indio Mandarinquat!

If you find yourself within driving distance of the next one you should come join us for all the fun!
