This producing citrus grove property is in an area of former and current citrus groves. It is bordered on the west by the South Florida Water Management District C-23 Canal. Originally planted in 1966, it is heavily resetted with younger trees. Included are two diesel powered volume pumps with bidirectional flow that provide for both drainage and irrigation. The property does not have electrical power; therefore, all pumps are diesel powered. A Microjet system covers the entire grove and the property can be flooded for freeze protection. In addition, the property is bedded with perimeter canals and secondary ditches for water management.
