When can citrus fruits be picked?

Although many citrus fruits are picked while still green, it's best to allow fruit to ripen on the tree for maximum flavor.

"Unlike some other fruits, citrus fruits do not ripen further once they have been removed from the tree, so it is important that they are picked at the right stage of maturity. Maturity is measured depending on different characteristics such as color, juice content, level of soluble solid (sugar) and solids to acid ratio. Normally, citrus fruits are harvested by hand. Fruit is best harvested after 8:00 in the morning, when dew has dried up, since otherwise, if the fruit was still wet, it would become dark and get spoiled...The general way to pick the fruit is by pulling it from the stem, using gloves in order to avoid damaging the fruit."

How do you make a model car powered by citrus fruits?

Is it possible to extract essential oils from citrus fruits at home?

Citrus oils are cold pressed. Only rarely steam distilled. That has to do with heat damage and the chemistry of the oil. The essential oil is in the peels. You may be able to press the peels at home, that it pretty self explanatory. The tricky part will be separating the essential oil from the total fluid that you manage to 'press'. The oil will rise to the top if you let it rest. An interesting experiment, without the appropriate equipment and bulk of plant material, I don't know how much success you'll have.

One of his test groups was given oranges and lemons, and they demonstrated the best improvement after treatment. You can read more about it courtesy of the BBC.

Why has my dr said i cannot have citrus fruits?

Citrus fruits refer to oranges, lemons, limes, grapefruits, mandarins, tangerines and clementines,not grapes. I am trying to guess why he should say this. Certainly if you are on statin,such as simvastatin you cannot eat grapefruit or drink grapefruit juice. It could be he is concerned about the sugar content,for example an orange has more than 3 teaspoons,but a lemon has only 2g and a lime virtually none, so that does not sound a good explanation either. I certainly feel you should ask him to explain his odd instruction.
