I have Oranges

Peachtree City, GA(Zone 8a)

I thought the squirrels had eaten all of my oranges. They were eating then about 2 weeks after the fruit was developing. I placed them behind one of the raised bed for the summer. I went to pull them out and found 3 oranges on my Satsuma "Artic frost". And one orange on my regular Satsuma. Next year I will place a net over them to get more fruit. There is nothing better than an orange that is allowed to ripen on the tree.

I have eaten 2 of the Artic Frost Oranges and they are better than the regular Satsuma orange.

Oranges aren't a tropical fruit, they don't do so well in the tropics. Limes are a tropical citrus. Oranges do best where they get a good chill. But you're right about tree ripened fruit, always the best, if you can get to it before the wildlife do.

Yes, I thought I had post under the Tropicals and Tender Perennials Forum.

It is difficult to know sometimes where you'll get the most views from a post. Some of the forums are very slow (or not even active at all).
