Meet a Grower

Mike Garavaglia:Beyond 9-to-5

Michael Garavaglia is a fourth-generation Florida Grapefruit grower who travels the world as much as his fruit.

Fourth-generation Florida Grapefruit grower Mike Garavaglia is proud that even though the fruit on his trees is all grown in Florida, it doesn’t all end up here.He’s fostered relationships with buyers all over the world, from Canada to Japan, and that means he often has to meet his fruit in the country where it will be sold.If he didn’t love what he did, he wouldn’t wake up every day looking forward to working with, talking about and even travelling with grapefruit.
