My fondest memory of Florida’s citrus legacy comes from my teenage years in the 1990s. We would drive through abandoned groves between Ocala and Orlando, windows opened, grabbing oranges as we drove by, filling the backseat. Those overgrown groves, even then, were a testament to the difficulties of growing oranges, left fallow because of the periodic freezes that cut into profits and the onset of citrus greening that destroys trees entirely.
