Grapefruit garden

Preparations for the new season are on their way and last week we paid a visit to one of our citrus growers.

Due to his unique location, all the crops are one of the earliest in Israel. The plantation isn’t big but has a wide selection of citrus fruit: Sunrise and Marsh grapefruits, a variety of Navel orange, Nova mandarins, Michal clementine and some pomelo and Sweeties.

The fruit looks good and so should be the crop: plenty of fruit and good sizes. Most of the fruit will be ready for harvest during September. Now I’ll let the pictures tell the story.
