the gift of fruit

grandma and georgie arrived in melbourne from country victoria laden with citrus fruit from the garden. they carried kilos of lemons, lemonades (cross between lemon and orange), tangerines and oranges, all grown in their backyard. straight away, i ate a tangerine and the concentrated smell and taste of just-picked citrus fruit overwhelmed my senses. i had no idea how good one could taste. it's been a long time since i've had anything as local, as close to the tree and as good.
