Gents,

Has anyone else noticed that this season’s citrus has been out of this world?

The clementines, ruby grapefruits, and blood oranges have been making my taste buds sing!

I am not sure if my paradigm has shifted to recognizing and enjoying the little things more, or if the fruit this year is special...perhaps a bit of both?  Who knows, but the fruit has been damn good!!!

BTW....blood red oranges are great for the eye catching something that they add to mixed drinks!

I like blood oranges a lot.  However, even in Florida, I can't always get them.

Really Ricardo? I would have never guessed that...Florida is the land of citrus plenty!

What’s going on down there?

Nice Matt!!! My citrus trees did have a good year. Extremely juicy Navel oranges and I still have lemons galore.

Sadly...I am realizing the citrus season for blood oranges and clementines has peaked and we are in decline until next year.

Clementines are still great, but no longer fantastic! Something to look forward to in 2020!
