Our Story

Our Texas Groves

Since 2011, US Citrus has been grafting citrus trees and establishing groves in perfect sandy loam soil of Hargill, a tiny South Texas town. The community has rewarded us with bountiful inspiration, strengthening our citrus culture.

Water Conservation

US Citrus only uses drip irrigation, reducing water use per tree by over ~90%, compared to flood irrigation techniques.

Land Conservation

Because micro-budded trees are smaller, we plant at a high density at ~ 6-10 times the conventional system. This allows us to use drastically less land for any given harvest yield.

Natural Protection

We plant grass in the middle of our rows to increase natural predators, decreasing pesticide use. Weed fabric is placed around trees for physical suppression of weeds, decreasing herbicide use

Our Secret

Developed by our founder, micro-budding is a grafting method done at an extremely young age, combining the best qualities of a hearty root stock with the delicious qualities of the chosen graft. The resulting trees naturally grow much faster and precociously bear fruit earlier than conventionally grafted citrus trees. With no special care!

Our Mission

To provide the American consumer a steady supply choice of citrus fruit and trees.

Our Vision

To share the pleasures of citrus via the power of micro-budding.

Our Founder

Dr. Mani Skaria, a citrus scientist and Professor Emeritus from the Texas A&M University-Kingsville. He is the recipient of the prestigious Pott’s award, recognizing outstanding scientific contribution and service to the citrus industry of Texas.
