Japan has been a prime marketing target for years, but Florida has tended to dominate there, Krause said.

That could change, though, he said.

“As Florida’s volume declines due to the disease pressures and issues, there’s some opportunity to step into that gap,” he said.

Japan is a prime export destination for the Edinburg, Texas-based Edinburg Citrus Association, said Jeffrey Arnold, salesman for the grower cooperative.

“Japan has been our No. 1 market for export and insists that Texas has the sweetest grapefruit in the world,” Arnold said.
