Georgia oranges?

first_imgKumquats: several varieties, usesDowdy lives in Brunswick, Ga. There, he doesn’t worry much aboutfrost and freeze damage. “When I was a teenager, our family had akumquat tree in our yard on Jekyll Island,” he said. “So my firstcitrus tree was a kumquat.”Good choice. Kumquats are the most cold hardy of the commonlygrown acid citrus fruits. “Kumquats have delayed growth in thespring,” Fonseca said. “This helps them avoid late freezedamage.”The kumquat is widely grown in home landscapes. It becomes anattractive, shrub-like tree with orange-like fruits about 1 inchin diameter.The fruits can be eaten fresh, peel and all, or used to makejellies, marmalade and candies. Several varieties are available.But only three are commonly propagated: Nagami, Marumi and Meiwa.”Nagami fruits are oblong to pear-shaped and have acid pulp,”Fonseca said. “The others are sweeter and rounder. Meiwa, whichproduces nearly round, sweet fruit, has become one of the mostpopular varieties for home planting.”Unfortunately, Dowdy’s kumquat plant declined and died. His nextcitrus tree has brought much more success. Experimenting with different citrus”The tangerine tree just took off and produced a lot of fruit injust a year,” he said. “I planted it by a huge oak tree, so Ithink it protects the tree from what little frost we do get.”The first year, Dowdy drove into Florida to buy citrus-fruitfertilizer.”The second year, it started looking bad, so I boughtcitrus-fruit spikes from Home Depot,” he said. “It perked upafter that and produced so much fruit that the limbs broke.”Dowdy and his neighbors often share their harvests. “On my streetalone, we have grapefruits, oranges, kumquats and tangerinesgrowing,” he said. By Sharon OmahenUniversity of GeorgiaDavid Dowdy harvested enough tangerines from his backyard tree togive a small basketful to each of his family members. That maynot impress you, except that Dowdy lives in Georgia, not Florida.University of Georgia specialists say citrus trees can grow incoastal and extreme southern Georgia with proper attention toselection and cold hardiness. South Georgia bestThey grow best south of a Columbus-to-Macon-to-Augusta line, saidMarco Fonseca, a Cooperative Extension horticulturist with theUGA College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences.Fonseca strongly discourages trying to grow citrus in middle tonorth Georgia or in home landscapes lower than U.S. Department ofAgriculture zone 9.”The most significant limiting factor to citrus culture in theseareas is the damage from severe winter temperature,” he said. “Georgians along the coast have had success the past few yearsdue to the mild winters.”Fonseca has seen citrus growing as far north as Cherokee Co., butonly trifoliate-oranges. “This is a thorny tree with fruit that’sso sour it’s inedible,” he said.Georgia’s unpredictable weather also lessens homeowners’ chancesof success. “It can be 75 degrees one day and below freezing thenext,” he said. “This will obviously kill new growth and bloomsor flowers that could become fruit (and) put added stress on theplant.” Not just for fruitCitrus plants can be grown as individual plants or in groups ashedges, Fonseca said. They also make excellent container plants.”In addition to providing fruits, citrus plants make attractiveornamental specimens,” he said. “And they’re self-fruitful, sothey don’t require cross-pollination.”Hybrid plants called citranges have been crossed to grow betterin Georgia conditions, he said. “I know of two varieties that aregrowing in Telfair County and Thomasville,” he said. “Theyproduce blooms, but the fruit is lemon-like.”Back in Brunswick, Dowdy’s already planning his next citrusexperiment. “My neighbors are now growing big grapefruits thatI’d put up against Florida-grown fruit,” he said. “Maybe now I’lltry to grow a pineapple.”Pineapple plants can be potted and easily brought indoors, too,Fonseca said.last_img read more

Report: Officials Asked Medical Examiners to Withhold Virus Death Figures

first_imgFlorida’s Department of Health tried to keep a tally of coronavirus deaths that is tracked by Florida’s 22 medical examiners from being released to the public, according to The Tampa Bay Times.The article states the list from the medical examiners had previously been released in real time. However, when the newspaper reported that the tally was 10 percent higher than the health department’s count, state officials directed that the list be reviewed and possibly redacted. The pause in reporting has been occurring for 10 days, according to the newspaper.In addition, the report comes as Gov. Ron DeSantis announced Phase One of his reopening plan for the state, with the exception of Southeast Florida.“For Florida, going from where we are now to phase 1 is not a very big leap,” DeSantis said while announcing the plan on Wednesday. “I think we will be able to be a small step for us. We will approach it in a very measured, thoughtful, and data-driven way.” Phase One begins on May 4.Meanwhile, Florida currently has more than 33,000 coronavirus cases and more than 1,200 deaths from the virus, according to data from Johns Hopkins University.Names of the deceased are not included on the list, although there is demographic information, probable cause of death, and a case summary.Dr. Stephen Nelson, who serves as chairman of the state Medical Examiners Commission, the group that released the list, says that state officials told him they plan to remove cause of death and case descriptions from death counts. He believes such a move would make the information “meaningless.” “This is no different than any other public record we deal with,” Nelson said to The Times. “It’s paid for by taxpayer dollars and the taxpayers have a right to know.”A spokesperson for the Florida Department of Health told The Times that the agency held conference calls with the state’s Department of Law Enforcement, which provides administrative support to the Medical Examiners Commission, about privacy concerns for those who have died from COVID-19.The spokesperson explains that the health department did not provide a legal opinion.On the other hand, The Times adds that an employee for one of the state health department’s county offices claims the difference in figures between the two lists is a result of the department excluding from its list “some snowbirds and other seasonal residents, along with visitors who died in Florida.” The newspaper reports that the medical examiner counts all people who died in the state.The difference in figures has been a concern for Florida’s Democratic congressional delegation, which recently sent a collective letter to DeSantis, asking for a “detailed explanation of the public health justification” for the difference in the tracking methods.They also asked the governor to work with the health department and the medical examiners around the state to ensure that coronavirus cases are identified and reported accurately.last_img read more
