Each year for over 20 years, I have had a free citrus tasting and open house in my backyard at 404 Forest Dr. in Lake Jackson, TX about 50 miles south of Houston, TX.  The next open house will be Saturday Dec. 13, 2014, from 2PM to 4PM.  Everyone is invited that likes to taste citrus and see fruit trees.  I have approximately 200 different varieties of citrus, 50% to 70% fruiting, plus several varieties of persimmon, sapote, guava, pawpaw, loquat, pomegranate, avocado, papaya, fig, peach, passion fruit, Jaboticaba, Miracle Fruit, mango, and pecan trees growing in my backyard.  There will be approximately 40 to 50 varieties of citrus to taste.  Over 30 citrus tree varieties (see the variety list on my home page) will be for sale, some rare and hard to find, plus a few other fruit trees.    Use "Google maps" to get to my home or email me for directions.


Come taste the citrus, and see the 3rd largest citrus collection in the state of Texas, and the largest private collection in Texas (free).  Come see and taste the giant Panzarella cluster lemon.  See grapefruit, tangerines and oranges all growing on the same tree.  Also, check out the magazine Texas Gardener Sept./Oct. 2013 issue, pages 26-31, or Sept./Oct. 2003 issue, page 18-24, and and Nov./Dec. 2006, page 47 for more details.
