Citrus bumper crop

A  pile of what looks to be pomelos is just a small sample of the citrus harvest now ready for the picking in the yards of Elysian Valley.

  1. “Pomelos”? (heavy sigh) Can’t we at least spare the simple lemon the increasing impulse to embellish and elaborate into some other exotic category? Just about every Mexican family in the neighborhood has a lemon tree. In fact, my parents still have lemon and avocado trees along with cilantro, yerba buena (mint leaves), and chile plants in their yard but they’ve never claimed to have green thumbs. In fact, my pops used to say that you could drop a seed anywhere in the neighborhood and a healthy plant would sprout with or without diligent care. The most fertile soil in L.A. he would say.
