Opinions on Cara Cara Navel Orange for N. San Diego County, CA
I posted this over on the Citrus forum, but thought I'd also post here, since I'm hoping some of my California citrus lovers can offer up their Calif opinions :-) I'm getting ready to head to Clausen's to pick up a Gold Nugget and a Page mandarin, and thought I'd like to also have a nice eating orange. I think I have two Valencias (both were in such bad shape from roof rats and ground squirrels, they were completely unrecognizeable at first) which are slowly coming back, and I back a very large abandoned Valencia orange orchard, so have my juice oranges more than I could ever use. But would like to have a nice, sweet eat-in-hand orange to round out my little home orchard. I am a mandarin lover, so if that helps any, and like my citrus (actually all my fruit) nice and sweet. Would love opinions on the Cara Cara. Nice to have something a little out of the ordinary, but not at the expense of flavor.
