oranges & grapefruit…

my mother has a huge grapefruit tree and a much smaller orange tree on her property in Florida, she has enjoyed an abundance of grapefruit in the last 7 years.  the orange tree is only a couple of years old so not much fruit from it, 9 oranges I think she said…

I don’t eat grapefruit, but apparently these are delicious!  she gives them away by the bag full every year…

    • thank you Cindy…my mother only has one grapefruit tree, but it is huge, almost too large for where it is now…

  2. Too bad I don’t live next door to your mother since our family loves grapefruits. 🙂 Their blossoms are very lovely!
