Have you ever been to a high-end expensive restaurant where the chefs garnished your duck with an exotic red blood orange or served your salad sprinkled with pomegranate seeds?

When you’re pushing your cart through the produce section of a gourmet specialty market, have you ever noticed the price of Meyer lemons or those little kumquats? Meyer lemons, kumquats, pomegranates and blood oranges are all top gourmet fare but can be easily and inexpensively grown in any backyard in Galveston County.
