If you're looking for the best tasting citrus available, look no further than the Lone Star State. Perfectly suited to South Texas' sub-tropical climate, fertile soil, and sunny weather, the first commerical shipment of citrus left the Lower Rio Grande Valley in 1920. Today, tree-ripened, fresh citrus from Texas is known for its sweet flavor and fresh taste.
Texas is the third-largest citrus producing state in the country. The citrus industry in Texas covers about 11,000 hectares (27,000 acres) and is made up of grapefruits, oranges, kumquats, lemons, limes, mandarins, pomelos, satsumas, and tangerines. Texas citrus growers carefully maintain crop quality through precision irrigation techniques, adapting management practices to the unique growing conditions, and extensive research with academic and industry partners.
