Shipping Home Grown Citrus
The packinghouse will remove plant debris, wash, disinfect and then pack your fruit in shipping containers marked with the appropriate certification. This is done because studies have shown that fruit processed in this manner poses a minimal risk to spreading citrus canker. This helps to protect other citrus-producing areas from the unwanted “gift” of citrus canker.
Your fresh fruit gift will provide Florida “sunshine” to your gift list and help protect citrus producers!
