Photo of the Week: Indian River fruit at Crystal River, Florida
Normally the Photo of the Week would be up on Wednesday, but we’re slipping a little this week as we battle a (nice-to-have) tidal wave of work.
I took this photo in Crystal River, Florida, about 75 miles north of Tampa/St. Petersburg near the western coast of the state. I’ve talked about Florida’s manatees, pre-Columbian mounds and sugar plantations this week (and it’s the height of Florida citrus season) so here’s a juicy shot from a roadside fruit and produce stand.
“Indian River fruit” is just a moniker attached to fruits, usually citrus, harvested within a certain distance from the Indian River in central Florida.
