Mellow Yellow ~grapefruit~Monday March 2, 2009


My neighborhood, here in the southern California desert, has a lot of grapefruit trees. Several neighbors have picked them and they are out in boxes by their mailboxes FREE to anyone who wants one! This is my neighbor's tree. She doesn't pick hers...they just hang on the tree. Aren't they pretty? Mellow Yellow for Monday, March 2, 2009

Ha! I've never seen nor eaten a grapefruit. Does it taste like pomelos? We have alot of that here.

That would be so cool to have your own grapefruit tree. They charge a fortune for them at the grocery store.

That tree looks like it's loaded with grapefruits! We managed to a couple dozen grapefruits from our dwarf grapefruit tree this year.

They are actually..I've seen tree after tree (just last season passing) of tangerines left falling to the ground unpicked! Amazing. Anyway- nice one

Oh, I would love to have some of those delicious home-grown grapefruits...yummy! My favorite are pink grapefruits though. Happy Mellow Yellow Monday!

How lovely! I grow lemons and limes in my yard and would love to trade for grapefruit.
