Wonderful Fruits of Lusaka?

Dear Joel,


I lived in Lusaka for four years or so in the early 1970s, and there is one food which I really miss.

A friend lived next to the football ground, in fact his garden wall was part of the football ground's wall (lucky him).

And right there was a lemon tree.

Not just a lemon tree, but certainly what must have been the best lemon tree in the world !

When it fruited the result was massive.

And delicious. Just like a sweet lemon flavoured orange.

The fruit itself did not have just the one pip on the top like the familiar (here) lemon, but was covered in them.

Can you tell me anything about these wonderful fruits ?

Blue Scop



Another thing that would be nice to hear about is the Blue Scop (I think that is the correct spelling). Another of the magic inhabitants of your country.

There was one of them in a tree in my garden one morning, - brilliant blue, performing it's mating dance, but I never managed to find it when I had a camera. I did get some film of its mate, but it is only the male which is a dramatic colour. (Perhaps that bally spitting cobra ate it)

Keep up your good work, you have a beautiful country to promote.

Best regards,

Dave
