dc.description A man and a girl are standing in an orange grove on a Harris County citrus farm.
dc.description.abstract The first commercial grove of grapefruit trees was planted in 1904; by 1925 approximately 80 percent of the Texas citrus crop consisted of grapefruit, the remainder of the crop being 15 percent oranges and 5 percent limes, lemons, tangerines, and kumquats. By the late 1920's the citrus fruit industry had centered in the Rio Grande valley and production along the coast to the east had practically disappeared.. (From Handbook of Texas Online.)
