Citrus Freeze Damage Report
A special survey was conducted on January 10-11, 2011 to assess the effect of sub-freezing temperatures that occurred throughout the Florida citrus producing region during the month of December 2010. Using the Federal-State Inspection Service standards, fruit was cut and scored for damage at depths of ¼-inch, ½-inch, and at the center, recording the point of greatest severity of damage.
The tables below show the distribution and severity of fruit damage. For all varieties, the majority of samples observed fell into the “no damage apparent” category.
