How many gallons of juice will an average citrus tree produce in a single growing season. It has to be a lot. I can only imagine what a joy it was for those who came before us generations ago when the citrus trees were rife with ripening fruit. I can just see a pioneer family living in quaint little cabin plucking an orange from a nearby orange tree after a morning of laboring on the land. Recently I was encouraged to pick some citrus from a neighbor’s tree. I did and I juiced my little harvest. The juice was delicious. We have so many mass produced beverages that are so empty of real nourishment that it was almost shocking to pick my own fruit to juice.
