The Upper Gulf Coast Citrus Show was held on
Dec 10, 2010 at Carbide
Park in Hitchcock Tx and we had a total of
146 different fruit entered
for display and judging.
The entries reflected the remarkable range of citrus that is grown in
including oranges, grapefruits, lemons,
tangerines and tangelos.
Last winter’s notably cold weather spells significantly reduced the
of lime and lemon entries in the show as
limes and lemons
are more sensitive to freezing temperatures
than other types of citrus.
Among the winners was Nancy Ferverda, of Dickinson : with her second
place, Moro blood orange Cluster; third
place Page mandarin.
