We need a cold snap!

Our orange and grapefruit trees are heavy (literally) with fruit! The tree on the left is full of juicer oranges, while the one on the right contains pink grapefruit. We are eager to get them off the tree, but they don't sweeten up until we've had our first cold spell. A cold front is coming through today, but overnight temps will probably only be in the 50's. Once we see

temps in the upper 30's, we can start to pick them. Hopefully they will be ready by December, so we can bring a bunch with us to Pennsylvania!
