It’s here! Winter citrus season!
Our dwarf citrus trees in the backyard are dotted with dozens of key limes and a handful of pink and Meyer lemons. Our grapefruit tree is still a little young but the Rio Grande valley picks up the slack when it comes to our sizable demand. They churn out wonderful, softball-sized Texas Rio Star grapefruits at only ~.20/lb. It’s totally worth waiting a couple of years for better production from our tree.
I’ve pulled together a collection of recipes where the citrus can really shine. And for the next 2 1/2 months, we’ll be whipping up lots more 🙂
