The Big Orange

Kissing fruits & we're not even at a gay bar.

Took this photo a couple years back at one of my favourite little [hee] markets, La Grande Orange. They make killer salads, pizzas, & the like, & you can buy wines, oils, & Wonka Bars!!! You’ll be singing about that golden ticket as you dine on the patio reading the paper enjoying the city.

A freight ship carrying a cargo of orange juice collided with another vessel in the Newark Bay, causing the coast guard to close the small waterway.The 669-foot ship, called the Orange Sun, collided with a dredging vessel at about 2 p.m., causing…

Wait, wait, wait… there are 669 foot cargo vessels carrying orange juice around the world?! Droooool…

And now I want to go to Montreal. I have this thing about ridiculously-shaped buildings, you see.

In My Yard

January 8, 2008

Back in July we bought this new house, and in the back yard to the side of the house, there lives three citrus trees. None had fruit at the time, so we waited to see what they were. Now that time has passed and they have all produced a crop, I feel confident that one is an orange tree, one is a lemon tree, and one is a hybrid orange-lemon mutant. The first two delivered very delicious fruit, truly some of the best oranges I have had. This bizarre other tree makes fruit that is really only useful as weaponry to throw at the cats that come to poop in our yard.

Technically Speaking

An orange—specifically, the sweet orange—is the citrus tree Citrus sinensis (syn. Citrus aurantium L. var. dulcis L., or Citrus aurantium Risso) and its fruit, the orange is a hybrid of ancient cultivated origin, possibly between pomelo (Citrus maxima) and tangerine (Citrus reticulata). It is a small flowering tree growing to about 10 m tall with evergreen leaves, which are arranged alternately, of ovate shape with crenulate margins and 4–10 cm long. The orange fruit is a hesperidium, a type of berry.
