Caitlin Saniga here again, trying to squeeze in a bit more fun before queen bee Lindsey Nair returns!
I’ve had citrus on the brain lately. Other fruits seem hard to come by this time of year, but many grocery stores in the area are well stocked with oranges, lemons, limes and the like. I added an odd citrus variety — the ugli fruit — to my cart during a recent shopping trip but chickened out before I reached the checkout. And just a couple of weeks ago I dug my claws into the thick pith of a gigantic pomelo and enjoyed my first-ever taste of the sweet-tart fruit.
There are so many varieties I didn’t even know existed until recently. Maybe you can relate. After all, the juicy, Vitamin C-rich fruits aren’t exactly native to Southwest Virginia.
So my curiosity got the best of me, and with the help of Google, I found answers to my questions, including: Is kumquat a citrus fruit? Where are limes grown? What’s the biggest citrus fruit of all?
