The Last of the Oranges
During the winter months here in the desert we are blessed with an abundance of fresh backyard oranges. Which means, naturally, that we are able to have fresh squeezed orange juice almost daily. In my book, there’s nothing better! We have, however, just used the last ones, so I found myself scouring the ads this afternoon looking for deals from the grocers…..something I have not had to do for a while.
Right before Christmas we bought and planted yet another citrus for the yard. It’s a Trovita Orange, a juicing orange, and is supposed to be a particularly sweet orange in our climate. Evidently in this case the warmer the climate the sweeter the orange. It’s supposed to make a very good patio tree and can be brought into the house to overwinter in colder climates. It’s a late producer too, so in the coming years we won’t run out until later into the Spring. Which will be a very good thing.
