I suspect that this was the Georgian equivalent of that common modern recipe for making use of green tomatoes at the end of a cold, sunless English summer - the ubiquitous green tomato chutney. I live in a Mediterranean climate and it's not unusual at all to have last year's crop of oranges and this year's crop of blossoms, or this year's crop of green oranges, on the tree at the same time. I was in Southern Spain recently in early June and noted that there were a few trees in the Seville area that were still bearing small numbers of bitter oranges.
