Hi folks,
I'm pleased to report that the James P. dePass Citrus Grove was planted today, on the Florida Southern College campus. 21 trees, 8 sweet orange varieties on several rootstocks.

Congratulations, Malcom. Please keep us posted on the progress of this terrific project. Ms. Curry sounds SO interesting.

More photos available for viewing at the link now. Sorry, I thought they were all visible before, but some apparently were not.

RE: New educational citrus planting

Thank you Dr. Manners! What a worthy project, and how exciting for the students to be so involved! Wish I were a few years younger - I'd move out to Florida to get your degree in citrus agriculture. We'll be very interested in how this lovely orchard progresses! Hope we can see a listing of all the varieties that have been planted, and what's in the future for other plantings.

Hoosierquilt -- one of the photos should be of the map of the new planting -- did you not see that one? It lists scions and rootstocks for all the trees.

Yes, we do plan to add other varieties to other plantings on campus in the near future.
