Join us at Yom Asif for a citrus tasting and lecture with the Volcani Institute

Since launching 101 years ago, researchers at the Volcani Institute have developed dozens of varieties of citrus from exceptionally sweet pomelo to the best Mandarin oranges in the world, to grapefruit that can be enjoyed by people taking cholesterol-lowering medications. During this lecture and tasting with Volcani’s Dr. Ron Porat, we’ll taste little-known citrus varieties, try markets not on the market today, and get a better understanding of the complex flavors of citrus and what goes into developing and cultivating them.
