Citrus Groves Vanishing

Personal memory by Jonathan Pollock

2016Clermont, FL, USA

Florida Citrus Groves were the highlight of Clermont, Florida. I remember hearing my parents talk about driving through the citrus groves and going up the Citrus Tower. A rampant bug has spread through the population wiping out more than just citrus groves. Citrus farms are being replaced by home subdivisions. The only place left it seems are in places that are overrun with trees.
