Growing Fruit

Citrus Trees for the Everyday Gardener

When many of us think of citrus, we think of massive orange groves, warm weather and abundant sunshine.  While it is a beautiful mental picture, get those ideas out of your head because growing citrus trees is accessible to the everyday gardener!

Thinning Fruit Trees for Better Production

You haven't taste fruit until it has been picked ripe straight of the tree. Commercial fruit is typically picked while the fruit is still green and then allowed to ripen in transit to the grocery store. Unripe fruit does not bruise as easily during transport and ripe fruit would spoil before it reaches the produce section at the supermarket. So how do we get the big, beautiful fruits we see in the store, but picked when perfectly ripe from our own fruit trees? By thinning, of course!
