I am doing some research on composting citrus peels.  I have heard in the past that it is not good to throw lemon, orange and grapefruit peels into the compost because the acidic fruit can wipe out some of the good bacteria.

Searching online, people say they compost o.k., just a little slower.  Certain worms and bug will leave the citrus alone but it will still compost.  Any comments or info on this anyone?
These are not the droids you are looking for. Perhaps I can interest you in a tiny ad?
