  • OT: Honeybells critrus fruit

    This is just a cultural phenomenon heads up on trends.

    The independent growers in the State of Florida have a new citrus fruit called HoneyBells. It is a new fruit hybrid and naturally is in low production in Florida.
    This limited edition fruit is a treat citrus connoisseurs look forward to every January when the HoneyBell season starts. HoneyBells are a treasured rare hybrid of a Dancy Tangerine and a Duncan Grapefruit, with a unique bell shape. This combination resulted in a sweeter fruit, loaded with juice, featuring an intense unique flavor of their own.
    (from web site of a grower)

    It is only ripe during the month of January, and I got a few last week. They are everything the hype said they are. The Grapefruit used for the cross is a red colored fruit. is one link.
    this link ships to Europe
    News outlet story:

    These sweet, but tart tasting, fruits are getting a lot of Internet Buzz right now in parts of North America. I only got my first taste of these just last week. Could not help but pass the information on.

    If you do a google on "honeybells", you will get lots of links. Plenty of graphics showing baskets of honeybells.

    Bruce and the tech from Laguna finally caught up with each other after almost 2 weeks of phone tag. Bruce ran the sander for the tech and after checking a few things, it was determined it’s the bushing, probably. They are going to send a bushing for Bruce to replace it. If he has a problem replacing...

    Bruce lets it soak in on the cardholders, takes 24 hrs. I let everything drip for a few minutes then wipe excess off. 50/50 takes longer to dry than 40/60. I usually move everything upstairs and turn the ceiling fan on to to help it soak in. This finish takes 3-4 days to dry enough to take to shows....
