The production and distribution of chilled citrus segments and salads has developed into an important outlet for Florida citrus within the last few years. These chilled segments are highly perishable sections clipped from oranges or grapefruit, using technics similar to the ones developed in the commercial canned section operation of the Florida citrus industry. The sections are subjected to a minimum of processing and for this reason maintain a substantial amount of their natural flavor for several weeks provided adequate refrigeration is provided.
