By the end of May, only three citrus varieties were available on my trees:
Valencia, Rhode Red (a Valencia too), and Nagami Kumquat.  The tasting and pictures are from May 22, 2018.  Valencia seems to be more complex and better tasting than Rhode Red.  This may be due to the immaturity of the Rhode Red graft. Both oranges are very juicy, especially Valencia.  Nagami Kumquat is pretty good now too.
