    I'm boycotting all their fruit, oh wait I only eat organic citrus fruit from CA.

    Thanks for the diary.

    I wrote a diary about a year ago blaming insecticides for BCC, it was hotly disputed. How long do the studies take to determine that insecticides (that which  kills insects and bees are insects) are harming honey bees and other pollinators. Are they sure yet?

      Certain grapefruit varieties and other citrus.
        CA grows more eating oranges (navel) and mandarins, plus some other grapefruit varieties developed there.
