To Big To Fail ? Nonsense!
A few years ago, I purchased what was tagged as a Dwarf Lemon Tree and was reminded by the nurseryman that the tree has two seasons for bearing fruit and that it must be fertilized twice a year.
I figured if twice a year was good, 3 or 4 times would be better? Wrong! Perhaps I was over doing it a bit because the fruit of this lemon tree is as you can see is ridiculous. To much fertilizer and too much water rendered this fruit unusable. The fruit of this lemon is mostly pith ( defined as : Spongy white tissue lining the rind of an orange, lemon, and other citrus fruits) and not usable. This lemon tree needs to go dormant for several years before the fruit may once again be usable.
So if you think the idea of "Too Big To Fail" is actually possible in some aspects of our economic life - at least know that it isn't in citrus fruit.
