Temples and murcotts? What the hell are they? I have never seen a temple or a murcott my whole life, but some how in 1963, the whole world was waiting until January when it was temple and murcott season. Some quick research tells me that they are varieties of oranges, which makes sense, but they must have been pretty popular that they could be called by name without an explanation.
Maybe the next wave of "heirloom" fruit will be citrus. We get more varieties of apples (even in the off season) in the last few years than ever before, and last year, even the regular supermarket had yellow and purple varieties of tomatoes. I say, bring back temples and murcotts!
