Mandarins (& Clementines) for Dummies

Sometimes when I buy those bags of small, easy-to-peel citrus fruit (sometimes called mandarins, sometimes clementines) they are sweet and yummy. Other times they are sour or bitter. What’s the trick to always getting sweet ones? Time of year? Country of origin? Luck?

Have oranges, want dessert. Help!

I have too many tangerines, and I'm hoping to convert them into a tasty dessert for my dinner party tonight. I've got most other dessert basics (flour, sugar, eggs, butter, etc) on hand, but I'm doing a grocery run anyway. What will wow my guests?

Why isn't my candied orange peel turning translucent consistently, dammit?

Whenever I make candied orange (or other citrus) peel, it always takes longer than recipe-writers seem to expect for the peel to become translucent, and some never becomes translucent at all. (a) What gives? (b) Is the not-translucent peel cool to store and eat? [more inside]

What is killing my lemon tree, and how to cure?

Help me save my lemon tree. It's got tiny black spots on both sides of its leaves, and small beige bumps on the undersides.

Early-stage leaf: top, bottom. Barely-affected leaf: top, bottom, bottom close. [more inside]

Caring for a potted citron tree

I have long-term custody of a potted citron tree that's a year or two old. It seems to be doing OK, but the central stem/trunk doesn't have any leaves at the top of it: Photo of the tree here. Should I prune the top of the trunk? If so, when and how? Is there any other pruning I should be doing at this point in its growth?

Why does orange pith make my lips tingle?

When I peel an orange or tangerine, I love to eat the pith off of the rind. When I do this, my lips always tingle for a while afterwards. What causes this? I've heard that orange piths have more vitamin C than the fruit itself, so is it the vitamin C causing the tingling?

Too many oranges!

My husband and I just received a gift box of Florida oranges. I know we'll never eat 30+ oranges before they go bad, so I'm looking for orange-intensive recipes. I've googled, but all I turn up are recipes that call for small quantities of orange juice or orange zest. I'd like to do something more interesting than just squeezing them for juice. Any suggestions?
