/ How Florida Oranges and Grapefruit are Grown and Marketed
All the time is sunthine Jime in Flor
ida's oranre and grapefruit groves. That
is why Florida's citrus fruits have such
a widespread reputation for superiority.
Sunshine, warmth, showers, dews and
semi-tropical ocean breeies are essential
in the production of the thin skinned,
fine texture, abundant juice, sweetness,
aroma and general health-giving proper
ties of oranges and grapefruit. No sec
tion of this country can boast of official
records showing so many days of sun
shine as Florida. No locality is favored
with such a generous and general distri
bution of gentle showers. No state in
the Union has so many real growing
There is practically no period in the
life of a Florida citrus tree when it is
dormant. It is growing all the time —
developing every day in the year. It
bursts forth into fragrant bloom in the
early spring when most of the country is
under a mantle of snow. It then sets its
buds into fruits that grow and mature
during the late spring, summer nnd
early fall months. The ripened golden
globes are gathered in the winter, in time
for the evergreen tree to recuperate and
begin over again.
Florida! Oranges! These two words
have been closely associated for centu
ries. More thnn four hundred years «~o
Ponce de Leon, that grand old Spanish
cavalier, with his retinue, came to this
continent in search of the Fountain of
Youth. Among the stores on the three
vessels were oranges from Spain. In
their fraveis through Florida Ponce de
Leon and his followers either planted or
scattered the orange seed. These grew
into thrifty trees, and the native Indians,
finding the fruit pleasant to the palate,
planted groves of their own, and the or
ange was firmly established in Florida
soil never to be eradicated.
The Indians planted their groves in the
most out-of-the-way places, mainly in
isolated hammocks where they usually
established their camps. It is not unusu
al, even today, to come across wild or-
' The Kiddies Enjoy and Thrive on Florida Oranges and Grapefruit,
ange trees in hammocks never before
penetrated by white men. While the In
dians confined the planting; of their or
ange trees to the chccare hammocks, as
a security against 1 lie Intrusion of sol
diers and the early white settlers, the
Spaniards, a few years afteruVird, took
the seed from the fruit of the trees plant
ed by the red men and made groves out
in the open—on higli land in the more
accessible places. And from this small
beginping in the sixteenth century. Flor

When Ponce de I.eon came to the
| southernmost peninsula of North Ameri-
Ica it was a new country. He landed
j near St. Augustine on Easter Sunday,
j and christened the territory Florida, the
| Land of Flowers. He found Indians in
! possession of the country, but had no
] serious difficulty with them. In the years
i following other Spaniards came and es
j tablished colonies. Then after the Span
-1 ish came the British. The indolent, slow
! going Englishman found the orange fair
! ly well established, and he very soon saw
! in it the means of making a comfortable
living with the expenditure of a mini
mum amount of labor. He planted
groves, gave them very little attention,
but gathered profitable crops. As the
years passed, Florida became a very
popular rendezvous for the "remittance"
man—that is to say, the Englishman
whose home folks sent him across the
pond with the promise of a regular re
mittance so long as he remained away.
These settlers made more groves, tended
them when they felt so inclined, but
never failed to gather the fruits thereof.
As time passed a more thrifty class of
lettlers came to Florida, noticeably af
ter the territory passed out of the pos
session of Great Britain to that of the
United States. Then the orange indus
try took on a new lease of life and was
developed along more satisfactory com
mercial lines. New methods of planting j
and cultivating were introduced. The
"remittance" man either modernized hit
efforts or retired from tne orange grow
ing business. The romartce was gone out
of the raising of citrus fruits. It had
proved its adaptability to the genial Flor
ida climate and hundreds of men cume

Today the growing and marketing of
Florida oranges and grapefruit has
reached the maximum of efficiency
through the organization of the Flori
da Citrus Exchange. This is the con
necting link between the grower and the
consumer, and it is growing strong*-:' ev
ery year. It looks out for the handling
of the crops of its members until they are
in the possession of the ultimate consum
er. Each step of the way both grower
and consumer are amply protected. The
Exchange is a non-profit making, co-op
eriitive organisation, aud stands for per
fect, tree-ripened fruit, uniformity of
pack, safe and speedy transportation,
marketing at the right time, and a care
fully planned distribution. Close at
tention is given to every detail, for it is
the pride and boast of the members of
the Exchange to give the consumer the
very best. In the Exchange packing
houses the utmost care and vigilance are
exercised; modern machinery cleans,
sorts and grades the fruit. It is handled
only by white gloved workers so that
there is no possibility of contamination.
The juice content of the Florida or;
ange is from forty to sixty per cent
greater than that of the California na
vel;:, and its rich and pleasing flavor is
unsurpassed. Orange juice is an elixir
that: no doubt would have rivaled the
beneficent effects of the waters of the
lamed Fountain of Youth, if that ever
had been found. It is recommended by
physicians for children and invalids who
can take little or no other food. Its
soothing, refreshing and stimulating
properties create a healthful combination
that no other medicine can supply. It is
a blood cleanser and regulator of hu
man organisms; it requires no alcohol to
preserve it or Migar to make it pala
table. There is no known fruit that can
compare with the Florida orange as a
delightful tonic for tired nerves or as a
stimulant for the weary. It would seem
that the golden globes compass the
healthful properties gathered from the
rays of the semi-tropical sun, the vigor
of the gulf and ocean breeses, the cleans
ing power of ihe rain drops und dews,
imparting them all to the human system
as nature would have them dispensed for
the beneficent use of man.
Is it a habit with you to begin your
breakfast with* a Florida grapefruit?
If not, it is only a question of time when
you will find it a necessity; just as much
so as your morning cup of coffee. Your
health, your joy in living and your pal
ute will demand it. Florida grapefruit
is a food tonic. Its content of citric acid
keeps malaria out of the system; it is a
liver purifier and stimulant, and aids di
gestion. In Florida its cultivation lies
been studied and followed scientifically
during the past two decades, and today
Florida grapefruit has no equal on the
face of t lie globe. In some sections of
this country it is not yet known, but
wherever it has been introduced it has
been speedily appreciated as a delicious
breakfast food as well as a healthful
tonic. In the growing, gathering, pack
ing and marketing of Florida grapefruit
as much attention is given to every de
tail by the Florida Citrus F.xchange as
with the handlis t of its smaller brother,
the Florida orange. Nio child labor is
used in any of the packing houses of the
Florida Citrus Exchange. All of the
work is done by skilled men and women.
In order to distinguish its fruit other
than by its excellent quality and supe
rior pack, the Exchange uses a brand
which is stamped in red upon every box
and printed upon every tissue wrapper
around each orange and grapefruit, bear
ing a design and the words "Florida
Citrus Exchange." This is the guarantee
of the Exchange, that the fruit is tree
ripened, sound and first class. The most
satisfactory and economical way to keep
