Grow citrus! Kumquat, limequat, lemon, honey murcott, tangelo, Cara Cara navel, grapefruit, ponkan, pummelo? This info packed little book shows the best types of citrus fruit for your garden and tells how to grow them. Although the book covers the many types of citrus, most of them grow in the same way because they are closely related.

Here are recipes for drinks, food, beauty products, household products, insect repellents, air fresheners, and more. Don't waste the fruit, peels, or even the blossoms. What a fun reference!

* Buy or harvest citrus. Tips on selection and storage of the best fruit.
* Grow citrus at home. Indoors in cool climates and outdoors in many southern states, here's what you need to know to keep your citrus trees and shrubs healthy.
* Citrus in the kitchen. Recipes and techniques for food and drink from citrus fruits, peels, and flowers. Treats! Waste nothing, not even the peels.
* Citrus around the house. Air fresheners, potpourri, citrus vinegar, citrus products for cleaning and stain removal, and orange oil for multiple heavy duty uses.
