    Thank you, Glen. I heard on a radio talk show a few months back, that there are some nutrients that aren’t produced until the last day or two of ripening on the tree. That means in this area you can’t get the most highly nutritious citrus fruit.

      That is correct Terry and thank you for bringing this up!

      We grow some veggies and fruit where we live and it is simply so much better picked when it’s ready. Best taste and optimal nutrients.
