  • Love this! Thank you! I am a citrus fanatic. I am growing my own citrus collection. lol. I defiantly give you thumbs up and i will be coming back to this video

  • Navel orange doesn’t have seed because they are genetically forced to start growing inside of fruit and form this mini orange that looks like navel from the outside?

  • Thank you for this video! This is so helpful to me. It’s winter, I’m craving citrus and have been bewildered by all the varieties available. I did a tasting tray for my boyfriend and I and we discovered were big fans of Minneola Tangelos! I also enjoy blood oranges. Again, thank you!

  • Normal people: thank u for the video, it was really effective!
    Ppl in this comment section: comrade, instructions unclear. I live in southeast Antarctica

  • I’m in India bro!! and trust me when I say I don’t even have to sit in the sun for the effect! It’s freaking burning inside my house

  • @ 2:40 “pick a lemon with no blemishes”

    WTF? i get my lemons full of blemishes and they taste perfect! great video but stop promoting that fruits should look prefect, they shouldn’t that is rubbish.

  • What you call Navel n we call it Thomson in my country, and we don’t make juice out of it, it is eaten as is. we make juice of the bloody soar one, we call it Bird Tong, because of bird tong like red stripes in it

  • Hello hello my #NotificationSquad! ���� Now that summer has come and gone… Flu season is among us.�� That’s why I’m caking up some vitamin SWEET!���� There’s nothing worse than getting sick, so I came up with some cold busters. �� Which one’s your favourite?? ��������

  • Those little Meyer lemons are so cute! Mine are the size of the grapefruit he’s got on the counter. Have 2 trees & every year, about this time of year, I’m giving bags & bags away. Have so many, I don’t want them to just rot. Church members love them. Didn’t believe they were lemons, because they’re so sweet, but still bitter. Makes excellent lemon-aid.
    Cut all meat away from skin, & place citrus rinds into a jar w/lid, keeping in fridge until full. When full, fill jar w/white vinegar, & place on counter for 5-14 days. Strain, discarding rinds into compost. Makes homemade citrus cleaner, w/no harmful chemicals. Can be diluted 1:1 w/water.

  • If anyone wants some tips, yes it does work. Dilute it with water, and put some coconut oil. This won’t damage your hair are is very helpful. Leave it in for 30 or more for better results. ❤️

  • Really I don’t understand that in this video there are 1 million views Why in her channel only 4.82 subscribers, why not 1 million?for her hard work??like for understanding ❤❤❤❤

  • Don’t you guys have Saathukudi? Otherwise known as a sweet lime? It’s green on the outside, yellow on the inside and deliciously sweet and soothing. And then there’s Nagpur orange which has loose skin that’s green and yellow and is bright orange on the inside and could be sour or sweet.

  • Hi, I have a home tree, called Red Centre Lime, a native lime tree. It s a small one but got lovely fruit allready. It is a Dutch citrus produkt. Question is:When can this fruit, now about 5 cm and red inside, be eaten?

  • Many of these are available in my markets. There are also Yuzu and Sudachi which are basically Japanese lemon and lime like fruits.

  • i enjoyed your program very much, and ile be trying to purchased citrus trees here in philippines do you know buy chance where i can buy citrus trees…….. regards barry scofield

  • Thomas I have seen almost the whole playlist of Conundrums and I am loving it! You have become my favourite YouTube person! I love your videos and the way you explain everything so clearly, I am indeed learning SO much from you. What an excellent teacher you are!!! Thank you so much Chef!!! Greetings from Switzerland

  • Hello Thomas! I have a conundrum on shortbread: when I bake mine, they tend to bubble up, is it my oven that is too warn or my dough that isn’t combined enough with the butter? I’m always wary of over mixing them. Thank you and Merry Christmas!

  • Hello everybody. I am a small YouTuber my name is Faith and I would love if you subscribed to my channel. Please and thank you. ����

  • My lump…my lump…..my lump…my lovely lemon lump…In the back but not the front…..check it out. I drive these people crazy. They squeeze me on the daily. They really love to slice or put my juice with some ice…….I have way to much time on my hands…..I’ll go now…..

  • You know there are so many citrus fruits in countries like Brazil. They’re like the leading orange juice supplier of the world. The States rejected their orange juice because of a fungicide that they said the Brazilian farmers sprayed on the oranges. Well, if Brazil gets a surplus then the farmers there will give the States the orange juice for free. Right?

  • Be sure to thoroughly wash your fruit before zesting, especially if they are not organic. They have coatings on the skin to give them a longer shelf life in the store. There could also be pesticides present.

  • i know this is an old video but i am wanting to get some lemon, lime and orange trees. i live in northeast texas where we do get some cold weather it may not stay but a few weeks at a time. but i also want to put my trees in the ground, should i group my trees together so, if need be i can throw up a tempary like hoop house arund them? what would you suggest again im in zone 8a

  • Omgg thank youuu for making this video! T-T I have another conundrum which is on spices. How do you use them like for example, how does each spice like cinnamon flavour a dish?

  • I knew most of this, but as usual, watching you is never a waste of my time. I didn’t know proper zesting and always used my zester to the white parts. I know better now, thanks!

  • Just a thought from a sound design person: Do you edit a room tone into these videos? There was a hard cut near the two and a half or so minute mark that was really jarring. I don’t notice this in Sarah’s videos, but sometimes when there are hard cuts either in the same video angle or from one camera to another, there’s a noticeable sound burst.

    In any case, I love Thomas’s longer videos. Thanks for this!

  • I live in CA and we have this fruit that’s as big as a grapefruit but it’s green. It has a very thick pith but the flesh is very refreshing. It’s almost floral. Anyone know its name or how to use it?

  • Could you guys do more videos on ingredient choosing? Like what we should look out for when buying ingredients n stuff:) if possible, please do one on matcha!! I have bought matcha a couple of times but they all come pretty dull both in taste n colour://

  • I never thought to turn my zester upside down. I always work the fruit back and forth on top of it!.. you also gave me a thought, can you do a KC episode on knives?! there’s so many, chef’s knife, santoku, paring knife, etc… what are each good for? how do you store them? sharpen them? would love to see that.

  • I have tried this 4 times, it didnt work. I only see a slight difference but i will keep trying and update you. I have light brown hair.

  • My heart goes out to those persons who commented on the intensity of the megaphone. Their supernatural hearing abilities must really be a bother, especially after lowing down the volume on their devices. I wonder if their own breathing keeps them up at night. Sending love and best wishes to those special creatures ��

  • I’m not wanting to be rude. The cakes obviously look and are amazing. But I can’t help but think the cakes look dry? what does simple syrup do to the texture??

  • My mom once told me that she didn’t want an orange. I thought she meant that she didn’t like oranges. I was low key offended because I thought EVERYONE loved oranges. About a week later I found out that she’s allergic to citrus. I’m such and idiot lol

  • Okay so as a joke I called the citrus fruit skinator number but then I heard an automated voice that said if you would like I speak to a representative press 0 and I hung up lol so maybe its a real number for a company lol

  • Good understanding of principles needed to capture heat as it’s released from the soil during the night. Mulched soil is indeed counter productive in this case.

  • Time to rob lemons from my neighbor! ���� cause I have pure black hair more then my knees well they were till my ankle but I cut them till my knees. They were way much long!!

  • Well, I have a young lemon tree, (more a small bush really) in the ground in my garden in Bulgaria. It can hit minus 15 celcius here during the Winter for maybe 2 months at a time. I know I need to wrap it somehow. It’s just how, it used to be in a tub that I could bring inside, but it wasn’t really putting on growth and didn’t flower or fruit, so I decided to give it the freedom of the garden..now I need to keep it alive.
