UPDATE: California Citrus

January 08, 2018

The San Joaquin Valley (California’s primary citrus growing region) has received a series of rain events that started early this morning and are expected to last through Tuesday afternoon. As a result, growers have cancelled harvesting today and tomorrow due to muddy conditions and wet fruit. Production is expected to resume by Thursday morning.
