Most of us are aware that we need a certain amount of Vitamin C daily in order to maintain optimal good health, but winter is a time when our bodies may need additional amounts of this vital nutrient. Citrus fruits such as grapefruit, limes, lemons, and oranges are a great-tasting way to add more Vitamin C to our diets. You may even decide to grow your own.

What a wonderful article. I thought I'd start a new comment thread since the other was so long. I guess there are many citrus lovers out there! LOL
I love all citrus. We use so much, that I really want to grow my own! Actually, I have various citrus trees, I've kept them in pots so far; except the lime went in the ground this year; next year the 3 yr. old calamondin and kumquat are going in the ground. Like you said, they are more cold tolerant than most. No fruit yet, but it takes between 3-5 years before they produce... I'm almost there!
Thank you for a great article.

|Thanks, Christine. It sounds like you are, indeed, almost there. Lucky you. And citrus fruits are just so colorful ... perfect for this time of year when color is often at a minimum.
