Citrus farmers expect good crop

Louisiana citrus producers say they have had a good growing season and expect an above-average crop this year.

In Plaquemines Parish, where the largest amount of citrus is grown, early varieties of satsumas are ripening, but growers say cooler nights and a little rain are needed.       

“The crop is early, sweeter and plentiful. I think these will be the sweetest since Katrina,” said Paul Becnel, a Plaquemines Parish grower, who began picking fruit Oct. 20.

Becnel said his crop is a little early this year, and he believes the trees are so loaded that it’s forcing the fruit to ripen faster.

Early satsuma varieties are coming in, and in two or three weeks, most others should be ready, according to LSU AgCenter county agent Alan Vaughn.
