Each year, Americans consume approximately 1.6 billion gallons of orange juice. Approximately 80 percent of orange juice sold in the U.S. is made from Florida-grown oranges. We’re not just the country’s main producer of orange juice; we also produce the second largest amount of orange juice in the whole world!
In this video, you’ll learn more about why Florida is so important in the citrus industry. Because the state receives around 50 to 60 inches of rainfall each year, Florida provides the perfect environment for growing and caring for oranges.
