  • 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.

    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.

    I couldn't resist (too long since any new toys) and ordered a blacklight flashlight from Amazon--same price as Harbor Freight. Should be here Tuesday--can't wait to see all the glue spots I've missed.

    The first picture is Wenge, pronounced WHEN-ghay or WHEN-Gii. It is a very hard wood. It’s splintery and very hard to cut. When finished, it is almost black. I use it when I need a black wood for Intarsia. I do not know anything about the other wood.

    I have a new neighbor who did a lot of woodworking in the past but had to give it up because of allergies. He sold his shop equipment and wood stockpile when he moved here, however he kept a few pieces of fancy wood and showed them to me. The first one (First Photo) he had no idea what it was. It is...
