Fruit Orchard

Almost every year we have lived on our farm, I have tried to plant at least 2 fruit trees or bushes. We have 4 peach trees, 4 plum trees, 1 lemon tree, 2 blueberry bushes and 2 orange trees, which are by far my favorite.

This post is about the Satsuma Orange Tree. Satsuma orange is also the name of a horticultural class of mandarin oranges that are the most cold hardy of commercial citrus. The horticultural class, Satsuma orange, includes several cultivars of Citrus reticulata. Wyman (1986) notes that tangerines tend to be smaller than Satsumas with orange skin and flesh. Satsumas tend to be larger than tangerines with a more yellow skin and flesh.

The easy to peel fruit is not beautiful to the eye, but my taste buds tell me it is the most beautiful fruit in the world!

Soo - what is next? I think we need a Pakistan Mulberry tree that produces fruit up to 4 1/2 inches long!

I love fruit...all fruits! I've never tried growing any though. I really should try.
