4 thoughts on “Citrus Polaroids

  1. Have you heard of an etrog? The latin name is Citrus Medica. It’s a big lumpy citrus fruit used in a ritual during Sukkot, a Jewish harvest festival. I got a chance to smell one a couple years ago and they’re so fragrant! Someone told me that if you store an etrog properly it will keep for about a hundred years. But I don’t know if that’s true.

    I also have a question. What’s the trick to growing potted citrus plants? I had a little lemon seedling that died this winter. I don’t know if it died from too much water, or not enough water, or if it decided Montreal just wasn’t the right climate.

    Beautiful photos, by the way!
