Citrus Crop Survives Cold
Published January 8th, 2014
In a stroke of good luck for citrus growers, they say this recent cold snap wasn't enough to damage their crop production.
The coldest temperature Tuesday morning was 39 degrees, it would have to get down to 28 degrees for an orange to freeze.
The owners of one citrus farm say there's actually an added benefit from this cold snap for the oranges, it makes them sweeter.
Farmers will be checking on the trees for any damage, but they don't think this cold snap will have a substantially negative impact on crop production.
That also means no real impact on the price of fruit.
