Even in the midst of cold winter weather, Texans can get a taste of fresh, juicy citrus fruits grown right here in the Lone Star State. Did you know that Texas citrus farmers grow grapefruit from November through March each year?
Meet Dale Murden, a South Texas citrus farmer. Dale has grown fruit in Monte Alto, Texas, since 1980, and you can find his crops both in the fresh produce aisle and with the canned fruit in your local grocery store. In this Meet a Farmer segment, Dale gives us a look at his South Texas citrus crop.
So, if you’re craving a sweet Texas treat, head over to your neighborhood grocery store and pick up a big, juicy grapefruit. It just may have come from Dale’s farm!
