L’Hoste Citrus

Lester and Linda L’Hoste of Braithwaite, Louisiana will return to the Uptown and Ochsner markets soon (maybe this week) for their 24th year of selling citrus at the CCFM. Lester is proud to be one of the only certified organic citrus growers in the region and has recently retired from his day job as a chemist, giving him extra time to grow his citrus and expand his farm. For now, look for his table full of organic satsumas and persimmons - he says it’s among the highest quality crops he’s ever had. In the coming months as we delve deeper into the citrus season you can expect Meyer lemons, navel oranges, blood oranges, grapefruit, and kumquats, too.
