Citrus in autumn

We're having comfortable, cool nights now that autumn has arrived. That's telling my citrus trees that it's time to start ripening the fruit. As I prowl around my garden each day, I can see the colour changing, ever so subtly.

First the blood oranges lose their greenness and become tinged with yellow.

Not to be left out, the mandarin also changes. Soon the juicy citrus fruit of winter will be ready to be savoured.
