MISSION — Days after the community celebrated one of its oldest industries at the Texas Citrus Fiesta, local citrus growers were tending to their trees trying to determine if next year’s crop would be hindered by last week’s big chill.
“We’re very encouraged,” said Texas Citrus Mutual President Ray Prewett on Monday. “Up to this point, we see no real signs of damage.”
While there were reports of ice on trees, Prewett said there was no ice reported inside fruit that would cause damage to the fruit.
