Because of greening disease the estimate for Florida grapefruit harvest dropped 800,000 boxes to a total of 8.1 million boxes. Just for comparisonís sake, the grapefruit harvest during the 2003-2004 season was 40.9 million boxes.

Did demand also drop to match?  If not, who is missing their grapefruits?  My grocery stores are still well stocked.
