Florida in the pink Florida pink grapefruit growers have high hopes UK exports will top the 850,000 cartons sold mainly to UK multiples in 19997/98. The exact figure could be higher as it will depend on the proportion of fruit transshipped from the continent. The season started some three weeks later than last year and there was a higher proportion of smaller sized fruit. The department of citrus believes there is the potential for sales to extend well into May, but recent very high temperatures could affect quality. {{FRESH PRODUCE }}
