Everything is bigger in Texas – and the state’s citrus crop is no exception. After two years of extreme weather putting a damper on grapefruit and orange production, growers have returned with a strong harvest. A hurricane and freezing temperatures aren’t enough to deter Texas growers.
The ever-sunny Rio Grande Valley on the border of Texas and Mexico produces surprisingly sweet citrus products. A much stronger 2022 harvest has been met with grateful consumer demand in the Lonestar state. Megadrought in the West and Hurricane Ian in the East has opened ample demand opportunities for Texas citrus.
With relatively disease-free acres and friendly weather, most Texas citrus growers expect to keep the yields going in 2023.
