Photo Hunt #230: Travel/Citrus

28 Jun

I had something else planned for this combination of themes, but I was in training all day yesterday and came home to summer heat. I was drained, and did not want to turn on the computer at all. So I never got around to finding the photo that I know I have in my archives.
Instead, I am recycling this photo. I’m sure that some of you may have seen it more than once in the past.

When I travel, my preferred method is by car. I love road trips. California is a huge state that it will take you several hours to go from the west end to the east end. We tried one day on a camping trip that involved road tripping too. On the way, we passed by citrus grove. I know that outside of Florida, California grows the most citrus/oranges. I just didn’t expect to see it in the central valley. I thought the state’s citrus farms are in SoCal. Anyway, I remember reading that most of the citrus that Florida grows go into the production of orange juice, while California oranges are eaten as fruits.

    That’s a beautiful pic! I do believe your right that Cali oranges are more for eating. We have them imported here too, but the Florida ones are for juicing. I like car trips too 🙂

    Beautiful shot. I didn’t know that most of FL oranges go into orange juice. I usually get a case of FL oranges for Christmas and I eat some but also make fresh squeezed orange juice with some. To me that’s the best orange juice, squeezing myself right before drinking it.
