"An excellent book that is needed by all who are interested in growing citrus in Florida or elsewhere."--Florida Garden Guide

"Filled with tips on growing Florida's claim to fame. . . . Can help anyone grow grapefruit, oranges, lemons, or limes."--Tampa Tribune

Whether you're responsible for acres of orange, tangerine, or grapefruit trees, or just grow limes and lemons in your backyard, Citrus Growing in Florida has been an indispensable guide for nearly fifty years. Now available in a fifth edition, this concise, comprehensive book combines the practical day-to-day aspects of citrus growing with underlying horticultural principles in a clear, easy to read style.

Authors Frederick Davies and Larry Jackson have a combined eighty years of experience with citrus culture and production, teaching, extension, and research. The revisions in this edition cover new regulations, new pests and diseases, and new issues in marketing and selling citrus.

For commercial growers, the book discusses planting, production, grove management, fertilization, spraying, and harvesting. For homeowners, it provides practical advice on growing the tart, tangy, sweet, and juicy fruits that define the flavor of the Sunshine State.

“A comprehensive guide and reference for both the large and small citrus grower throughout Florida and beyond. The publication provides up-to-date information on citrus varieties, nutrition, cultural/production practices, pests and historical information. . . .Will aid all producers in selecting production practices and understanding this major agricultural commodity in Florida.”--Stephen H. Futch, University of Florida
