Planting more trees in 2012

These are after-Christmas varieties, which will start bearing fruit in about 2 years. They include Sugar Belles, Ortaniques, which are a Jamacian Temple Orange, Honey Murcott Tangerines, Rio Red Grapefruit, Early Gold Oranges, and Tango seedless Tangerines… just to name a few! Most of these are new varieties, not commonly found in Florida groves and markets.
