A Load of Oranges

We were kindly sent a box full of oranges by my wife's grandparents. Despite being in their eighties her grandparents still make a living growing and selling fruit, getting up at four in the morning in order to pick their crops. I can only hope to be that energetic when I reach their age!

Should be okay for vitamin C then.
 I remember the first time I came to Osaka during the winter and how I was shocked to find oranges growing everywhere. In my naivety I never realised at the time that oranges grew in the winter, let alone in Japan!
