Florida State Flower

The orange blossom was designated as the Florida State Flower in 1909. Oranges are extremely popular in the “Sunshine State.” Juicy oranges are recognized as the official state fruit. Can you guess the official state beverage? That’s right … it’s orange juice! Citrus fruits, especially oranges, are a major contributor to Florida’s economy.

Florida’s state flower is beautiful as well as commercially valuable. Millions of fragrant orange blossoms perfume the air during the spring. Months later, the orange tree bears its fruit, typically the sweet or navel orange. Florida produces the majority of citrus fruit grown in the United States.
