The bloom for this year is winding down. This orange blossom is one of the last to be seen in this Florida citrus grove. The bloom started early this year in January–about 6 weeks sooner than normal. It continued for about 8 weeks, resulting in 2 to 3 different crop sets. We have never had this situation before, so it will be interesting to see how the trees and crops develop this season.
