We picked our own citrus and strawberries on Thursday at Pappy’s Patch U-pick Strawberries (field B) in Oviedo. See their Facebook page for hours. The farm is only open seasonally.Our u-pick citrus
They had lemons, pink grapefruit, tangerines and honeybell oranges. We picked honeybell oranges and pink grapefruit. It smells so good in the citrus groves!Pink grapefruit
Citrus picking tips: I grew up with our own orange and grapefruit trees in our backyard in South FL. We used to pick and then juice them. If the citrus comes off easily then it’s ripe. The ones on the ground are gross. Wear bugspray. Also there were bees and ants around just in case anyone is allergic.

I juiced all of the citrus when I got home. It was delicious.

Wash and then slice the citrus this way.

I used a regular electric juicer. It was delicious.
