In the begining of the 20th centuryJackson County was home to the Satsuma Industry. There were over 3000 acres in production in the 1920's and were shipped by railcar to cities in the north such as Chicogo. There were annual festivals attracting over 30,000 vistors. The area became known as satsuma capital of the world. However the depression came and groves were hit with severe freezes killing most of the trees and with no money available they were not replanted.
Agriculture research departments of University of Florida and Alburn University developed cold protection using microjets. It is accomplished by spraying trees with water and as it freezes produces heat maintaining 32 degrees which is not threatening to trees.
