Re: For what it's worth


Well. for many years now, Brazil has been the major source of orange juice. Coca-cola's subsidiary, Minute Maid, is mostly Brazilian juice] One of the more interesting "aside'ems" of Brazil citrus is Brazil does not have a fetish about appearance. So citrus with scab [a complexion problem at best] are juiced. In Florida, when scab is found, whole neighborhoods are savaged by the citrus cops--even though the problem is only skin deep--pun intended

So who now is the citrus capital if Florida is not....

Subject: [CHAT] For what it's worth> Heard a damage assessment on the radio on the way home this afternoon that included as fact that ornamental plants are a larger industry in Florida than citrus.
