Yep! Fiesta ware. I think cookware and eat-ware glazes have been tested for the nasty metals for a very long time. Reds---cadmium, blues and greens- copper, orange and yellows- uranium. Etc.

Now that Heat Domes have become the latest expression of climate chaos, I'm wondering what folks are doing for electricity-free cooling.
What works when things get so extreme?
What no longer works?

So that must be how new varieties get bred. Have you tried it yourself?

Self-fertile fruiting can also be the result of apomixis, the spontaneous development of unfertlized ova (immaculate conception). These produce clones of the mother plant or animal.

Interesting article here: "The Genetic Control of Apomixis: Asexual Seed Formation"

Starting out with not much more than your average suburban Dutch garden plot, with the citrus in just one corner. We have eyes on the neighboring plot that would give us more than a hectare to play with. But first we need to convince the owner to sell :)

Actually, I'm moving to Alicante, Spain in a few weeks. There is a small planting of citrus in the garden, but we're planning a more complete permacultural treatment of the plot.

You are right, Brown Turkey is self-fertile. Many of the commercial varieties are also so, probably more true for those in the US than in the Mediterranean itself.
There are also fig-growers groups on FaceBook, where lots of trading goes on.

good tips on the aromatics, and as the Mediterranean is the homeland of many of them, they should do well under the citrus!

thanks for the ideas
