Southern Gardening: Gardens can produce fresh fruit
There’s nothing like reaching into the toe of a Christmas stocking under your tree and finding a fresh and tasty satsuma orange that came right from your own garden.
I’d like to say I’ve done that, but so far, all the fresh satsumas I’ve enjoyed have come from my friend Terry’s house. Let me just say that I don’t have to worry about scurvy for a while.
Having enjoyed Terry’s satsumas so much, I just went out and bought the first of what probably will be several Satsuma orange trees that I will own. I’m not the only fan of these oranges. Some of the most popular small fruits grown in Mississippi are the various citrus species.
