Florida is well known for its citrus industry, which is valued at over 8 billion dollars, and is one of the top citrus-producing states in the United States. Over 90% of Florida’s citrus crop is processed (squeezed) for juice. Florida orange juice is shipped around the world. The most common citrus fruit grown in Florida is the Valencia orange, but grapefruit, lemons, limes, and tangerines are also grown in Florida.

Directions: It takes 4 medium oranges to make an 8-ounce glass of orange juice. Circle the four matching oranges.
