Welcome to the Florida Citrus Hall of Fame
Honoring Distinguished Leaders of the Florida Citrus Industry
The Florida Citrus Hall of Fame was established in 1962 to honor distinguished leaders who have made significant contributions to the Florida citrus industry. Seventeen nominees were inducted the first year and members of the industry have been inducted each year since.
There are currently over 175 members of The Florida Citrus Hall of Fame from all facets of the industry and all regions of the state.
The Florida Citrus Hall of Fame is pleased to announce the availability of a 108-page book filled with over 180 images of Florida citrus crate labels from the collections of Jerry Chicone, Jr. and Jim Ellis, as well as various photos, ads and postcards depicting images of fresh citrus production in the early years. This magnificent volume by Jerry Chicone, Jr. and Brenda Eubanks Burnette documents the story of "Florida's first billboards" and is certain to become a collector's item.
