If you have a large container and an warm space for winter protection, you can grow the sweetest nectar you will ever taste.
Oranges, lemons and limes all can produce fruit as patio plants here in Central Texas.
While the blooms are forming for the new fruit to come, I'm enjoying the final fruits of last year's harvest.
I grow my oranges organically and while they may not be beautiful on the outside, they are quite wonderful on the inside where it counts.
I'm growing a satsuma orange in a 20 inch ceramic patio container. Last year, the small tree produced more than 30 oranges and today I'm juicing the last 6 fruits of that harvest.
These oranges are super juicy and very seedy. Since seeds can be easily excluded, these oranges are perfect for juicing, but a little challenging to eat in slices.
With my old school, hand juicer, I juice each orange half one at a time. It takes a little elbow grease, but it's so worth it.
Six oranges yield a full container of rich, pulpy juice sure to give you a juice-gasm.
One sip and you can tell this juice is special. I'll savor it's wonderful sweetness very, very slowly. There will be no more juice till next year. Such sweet sorrow.
