Rajun,


I used to stop at a road side orchard between Morgan City and Houma. The owner would park his van beside the highway in the fall and set stacks of five gallon buckets outside his van. It was a pick your own Satsuma orchard. Five bucks for a five gallon bucket of Satsumas. I looked forward to a bucket of those things every year. I wish I could grow citrus in north Texas. We usually have a couple of hard freezes every winter and they would kill any citrus trees.


What do people use qumquats for. I see them in the grocery store every fall around Christmas. I tried eating a few and they didn't taste very good to me. I've seen them pickled, but I haven't eaten one.
