California produces 80 percent of all the fresh citrus marketed in the United States. California Citrus Mutual regularly compiles and updates market information growers need to successfully market the fruits of their labor.
Much of the fruit that California produces is for the domestic market. However, it is critical to continue expanding trade opportunities. The United States and Japan finalized a new trade agreement in 2019. This agreement puts California citrus back on a level playing field with competing countries. This trade agreement will stabilize shipments to Japan for years to come.
