On February 16, 1957, the first ship to transport orange juice in stainless steel tanks left Port Canaveral, Florida. Come along with Tidbits as we appreciate oranges! ORANGE HISTORY • Most types of citrus originated in southeastern Asia and India. Many modern varieties were developed in China and Malaysia and transplanted across Asia and Europe. • California used to be the top orange produc-ing state, but Florida surpassed California in 1942 and now produces three times as many oranges as California. (The average difference in rainfall between Florida and California amounts to an extra 1,140,000 gallons per acre falling on Florida.) Floridians call them orange groves, but Californians call them orange orchards. • Brazil is the world’s leading orange producer, with an output almost as high as that of the next three countries combined. Almost 99% of the fruit is processed for export. The United States is the second largest producer, followed by India, China, Mexico, and Spain. • The total weight of citrus fruit produced in the U.S. each year is greater than that of any other fruit tree in the U.S. • 98% of Florida oranges are harvested by hand. Over 100,000 people in Florida are employed in the citrus industry. turn the WANT TO RUN YOUR OWN BUSINESS? Publish a

WORD ORIGINS • The Sanskrit word ‘naranga’ meaning ‘fragrant’ passed into French, where the word ‘or’ means ‘gold.’ From there it became ‘orange’ meaning ‘gold and fragrant. ’ • The Cedars of Lebanon had round, hard orangecolored cones (like pine cones), and the word for cedar was ‘citron.’ When a new fruit showed up that resembled them, it too was dubbed ‘citron.’ This is the origin of the word ‘citrus’ which actually means ‘cedar.’ • Tangerines are a variety of citrus which first appeared in Tangier, a city in Morocco. (A person from Tangier is also called a Tangerine.) Mandarin oranges originated in China, where they speak Mandarin. Clementines may be named after Father Clement Rodier who hybridized them in an orchard in Algeria. ORANGE TREES • All citrus trees graft very easily so it’s easy to have oranges growing from a lemon rootstock, or lemons growing from an orange rootstock. In fact, a single citrus tree can have numerous grafts so that it bears lemons, limes, grapefruit, tangerines, kumquats, and oranges all on the same tree at the same time. • During cold snaps, owners of orange groves will sometimes spray their trees with water in order to form ice. The trees will die if the temperature drops to 24F, but with a layer of ice, the temperature stays at 32F if the wind is calm and conditions are right. • The lifespan of a typical orange tree is about 40 years, but there’s one tree in Europe that was planted in 1421 that lived until the year 1894 and survived several transplants. Some trees in Florida are more than a century old. • Citrus trees are evergreen. An orange tree seedling doesn’t start to bear fruit until it’s about 15 years old. Grafting new shoots to old roots makes orange production much faster.

FRUIT FACTS • You can’t pick an orange when it’s wet because moisture causes the skin to tighten which makes it very fragile. Orange picking has to wait until the dew dries in the morning and until after the sun has come out following rainstorms. • Oranges have a natural wax which protects the fruit from dehydration. During processing, the wax is washed off as the fruit is cleaned. Therefore, an artificial (and edible) wax is applied to the skin of the orange before it leaves the processing plant. Too much wax and the orange suffocates. Too little and it shrivels due to dehydration. • An orange will last about a month after being picked. An orange will not continue to ripen after it is picked. • Oranges that grow high on the tree are sweeter than those that grow on the lower branches. Oranges that grow on the outside branches are sweeter than those growing on inside branches. Oranges growing on the south side of the tree are sweeter than those on the north side of the tree. • The same is true about the amount of juice in an orange, and the amount of vitamin C it contains. Within a single orange, the blossom end will always be sweeter than the stem end. California oranges, where the climate is arid, have thicker skins than Florida oranges, where the climate is wet. • Green oranges are just as sweet as orange oranges, and oranges only turn orange when the weather turns cold. Oranges that have turned orange in the cold weather will revert to green again if the weather warms up once more. In many areas, such as Thailand, all oranges remain green constantly and never turn orange at all.

MOMENTS IN TIME • On March 5, 1839, Charlotte Bronte writes to the Rev. Henry Nussey, declining marriage. The 23-year-old Bronte told him that he would find her "romantic and eccentric," and not practical enough to be a clergyman's wife. Her novel "Jane Eyre" was published eight years later. • On March 3, 1865, President Abraham Lincoln signs a bill creating the Bureau of Refugees, Freedmen and Abandoned Lands. Known as the Freedmen's Bureau, this federal agency oversaw the transition of blacks from slavery to freedom. • On March 4, 1888, Knute Rockne is born in Voss, Norway. He would go on to become one of the most successful coaches in the history of college football, leading Notre Dame during its golden era in the 1920s. Rockne won three undisputed national championships with the Fighting Irish. • On March 7, 1938, Janet Guthrie, the first woman to compete in the Indianapolis 500 and Daytona 500 races, is born in Iowa. In 1976, she was thefirst woman to compete in a NAS-

The History Channel

CAR Winston Cup superspeedway race. • On March 6, 1945, members of the Dutch resistance attempting to hijack a food truck unwittingly ambush German Lt. Gen. Hanns Rauter, head of the Nazi SS in Holland. In retaliation, the SS put to death 263 Dutch. Rauter later was executed for war crimes. • On March 2, 1978, in a famous case of body-snatching, two men steal the corpse of film actor Sir Charles Chaplin from a cemetery in Switzerland. After a five-week investigation, police arrested two auto mechanics, who led them to Chaplin's body. • On March 8, 1982, the United States issues a public statement accusing the Soviet Union of using poison gas and chemical weapons against rebel forces in Afghanistan. Evidence to support these charges was largely anecdotal. Some critics charged that the accusations were a smokescreen behind which the United States could go forward in upgrading its own chemical weapons arsenal.

GETTING GASSED • To change the color of a green orange, the fruit is placed in air-tight containers and then surrounded by ethylene gas for up to four days. Ethylene gas is a natural substance that is given off when fruits and vegetables ripen. The gas eliminates the chlorophyll in the skin, allowing the orange pigment to show through. This is the same process by which a green leaf turns orange in the fall as chlorophyll production tapers off with cold weather. • The use of ethylene gas was first discovered when Californians noticed that oranges kept in a room where a kerosene stove was being used turned orange very quickly. At first they assumed it was the heat, so packinghouses began ‘ripening’ their oranges in heated rooms, which only served to dehydrate the fruit. Eventually it was discovered that it was the ethylene gas produced in the combustion of kerosene which was actually affecting the color of the oranges. JUICE • The search for an orange juice concentrate began during World War II when soldiers needed nutritious drinks in the field. The process of concentrating the juice was finally perfected in 1948. Today, about 96 percent of Florida’s oranges are processed into juice. • The majority of California’s crop is sold as fresh fruit, whereas Florida’s oranges become juice products. • 53% of total global frozen concentrated orange juice production comes from Brazil. • Orange juice squeezed at home will begin to turn bitter within hours because it reacts with oxygen. Orange juice squeezed in a factory is pasteurized which helps prevent this. • When Citrus Hill decided to call their orange juice “Fresh Choice,” the FDA seized 2,000 cases because the label, reading “Citrus Hill Fresh Choice Orange Juice” led people to believe the juice was fresh when it was not. Doctor: "Is your cold any better?" Tidbits Laughs Patient: "Nope." Doctor: "Did you drink orange juice after a hot bath like I told you?" Patient: "Nope—after drinking the bath, I couldn't get the orange juice down."


NOTEWORTHY INVENTIONS:

ORANGE JULIUS

• In 1926 Julius Freed decided he wanted to open an orange juice stand in Los Angeles. Real estate broker Bill Hamlin helped him find a location for his stand downtown. Julius and Bill subsequently became friends. • Julius didn’t do badly, but he thought there was room for improvement. Bill had a sensitive stomach and the acid in the orange juice bothered him. Bill also happened to be a chemist, so be began experimenting with orange juice recipes. • One day he presented Julius with a recipe that mixed orange juice, ice, and milk in a blender for a creamier, smoother, more interesting drink than just plain orange juice. • When Julius began selling it, his income jumped, rising from an average of $20 a day ($266 in today’s money) to $100 a day ($1,333). Because people in line at his stand would call out, “Give me an orange, Julius!” he named the new drink after himself: Orange Julius.

• Soon Julius Freed began franchising his operations, assisted by Bill Hamlin who quit his job in real estate and focused on opening Orange Julius stores across the United States. Within three years they had opened 100 stores and the profits for the system, whose only product was a 10-cent drink, approached $3 million. As shopping malls began expanding across America, so did the Orange Julius franchises. • In 1964, the Orange Julius was named the official drink of the New York World’s Fair. According to the Orange Julius website, the drink was also subsequently named the official drink of Intergalactic Fair in Andromeda Galaxy in 1965, although those reports remain unconfirmed.

HEART ATTACK FACTS • 37% of all deaths in the United States are related to heart disease, making it the largest single cause of natural death. Heart disease kills twice as many people as all forms of cancer combined. The major causes are smoking, fatty diet, high blood pressure, obesity, stress, heredity, lack of exercise, and diabetes. It is an illness produced of man's environment. Before 1900, heart attacks were very rare. The rate of heart disease increased so sharply between 1940 and 1967 that the World Health Organization called it the world’s most serious epidemic. • Every single cell in the heart is guided by an electrical impulse which synchronizes the heartbeat so all muscle cells contract in unison to pump the blood. During a heart attack, the cells begin firing out of turn so the efficiency of the heart is lost and the blood does not get pumped. When doctors shock the heart, the shock overrides each cell’s individual firing mechanism and once again synchronizes every cell, hopefully getting them all to work together again.

ORANGE JULIUS (continued): • In 1965 Johnny Carson was granted a lifetime pass to every Orange Julius restaurant outlet in the country. Astronaut Alan Shepard was given a similar pass the following year. • It has been widely reported that in his spare time, Julius also invented an inflatable shrimp trap and a portable pigeon shower for cleaning racing pigeons, which was one of his hobbies. However, others insist this information is untrue. • By the time Dairy Queen bought the business in 1987, there were Orange Julius stores throughout the U.S. and Canada, selling a variety of fruit smoothies along with the original orange drink, which has changed little since its invention. • Today Orange Julius has more than thousands of stand-alone stores, as well as combination Dairy Queen / Orange Julius locations in the U.S., plus locations in Canada and other international markets. Both Orange Julius and Dairy Queen are currently owned by a multi-national conglomerate called Berkshire Hathaway, whose CEO is billionaire Warren Buffet. • Here’s the recipe if you want to make a drink similar to the Orange Julius at home: 1 1/4 cup orange juice

LEMONS

• Christopher Columbus introduced citrus trees to the island of Haiti in 1493 during his second voyage. • The demand for lemons and their scurvy-preventing properties hit a peak during the California Gold Rush of 1849. Miners were willing to pay huge sums for a single lemon. As a result, lemon trees were planted in abundance throughout California. • Today, California and Arizona produce 95% of the entire U.S. lemon crop. California produces more lemons than all of Europe. • Lemons are technically berries, as are oranges, watermelons, and tomatoes.

• Lemon juice is about 5 percent citric acid, making it a natural for slowing the browning or oxidation of fresh, raw foods: apples, avocados, bananas, and other fruits. • When given a choice of orange, grapefruit, peaches, apples, or lemon, cattle will eat lemons first. This is thought to be because the citric acid in lemons aids in digestion. • Before juicing, roll a room-temperature lemon under your palm to break down the cells inside the fruit that hold liquid. If a fruit is especially hard, microwave it for 20 seconds. The average lemon holds about 3 tablespoons of juice and has about 8 seeds. • In 2003, the heaviest lemon ever grown was recorded in Kefar Zeitim, Israel. It weighed just over 11.5 pounds, had a circumference of 29 inches, and was 13.7 inches long.

Weekly SUDOKU

• You've doubtless heard of peak oil -- that theoretical point at which the global production of oil reaches its maximum output, after which production gradually declines decline -but what about peak poultry? Those who study such things say that the world hit its peak production of chicken for human consumption in 2006. • The first canned meat product, known as Hormel Spiced Ham, was developed in 1937. Several imitators followed, and the executives at the Hormel Company, concerned about the new competition, decided to have a competition to rename the product. The winner, Broadway actor Kenneth Daigneau (and brother to the company's vice president), won $100 for the winning entry: Spam. *** Thought for the Day: "A good speech should be like a woman's skirt: long enough to cover the subject and short enough to create interest." -- Winston Churchill

Answer

• It was American poet Ella Wheeler Wilcox who made the following sage observation: "To sin by silence when they should protest makes cowards of men." • During the Victorian era, a well-dressed gentleman was never outdoors without a hat, and most had different hats for different occasions. Of course, the cost of such haberdashery could mount significantly, so one enterprising British soul registered a design (which was much less expensive than registering a patent) for a "duplex hat" -an elaborate contraption that, by means of hidden springs, could convert from a top hat to a bowler hat to suit the circumstances. • Before you ink yourself, you might want to consider this: The cost of removing an unwanted tattoo can be up to 10 times as much as it cost to get the tattoo in the first place. • If you're like the average American parent, your kids get $3.40 from the tooth fairy for each tooth lost.

King CROSSWORD

by Samantha Weaver

• Although lemon trees need lots of sunshine and cannot tolerate killing frosts, they grow surprisingly well in poor soil, even in sandy soils. Lemon trees bloom and produce fruit year-round. Each tree can produce between 500 and 600 pounds of lemons in a year, which amounts to up to 3,000 lemons annually.
