L’Hoste Citrus

Lester and Linda L’Hoste of Braithwaite, Louisiana have returned to the Uptown Market and the CCFM Home Delivery Box for their 25th year of selling citrus at the Crescent City Farmers Market. 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 (hello, future figs!). Did we mention he invented his own organic pest control spray?! For now, look for his table full of organic satsumas, lemons, and persimmons - he says it’s among the highest quality crop he’s ever had. In the coming months as we delve deeper into citrus season you can expect navel oranges, blood oranges, grapefruit, and kumquats, too.
