Ujukitsu Sweet Lemon
This is one of the most unusual and unique citrus
fruits I have ever come across. The fruit tastes like lemonade.
The shape of the fruit is like a minneola tangelo with a maybe more
pronounced "neck." It peels like a mandarin and the sections
separate easily. The flesh is yellow, somewhat seedy. Thanks
to Sam and Ginger of Santa Fe, TX for giving me a few fruit this
year to enjoy.
Grapefruit grown 460 miles north of the citrus
These grapefruit were grown in Bridge City, TX.
My friend brought back a sack of pink grapefruit from Florida more than
20 years ago and planted some seeds. Budwood from the seedling
tree is now grafted to trifoliate rootstock, is 35-40 feet tall and is
covered with bushels and bushels of fruit. He also budded some
wood to flying dragon rootstock and that tree is only about 8 feet tall.
The fruit tastes as good as anything grown in Florida.
