Harvesting from orange tree
We have a property where I now own an orange tree. It is now the beginning of March and I have a lot of oranges, and I also have a lot of new white buds. I have read that if the fruit is ripe (which it is), that I should pick the fruit as I need it, as the fruit will remain healthier on the tree. My question is-- wouldn't the tree be healthier if I removed the fruit now, as I am now seeing flowering buds?
