Default Fresh Cider in FL

We are not lucky enough to have fresh cider here in FL or am I wrong? Anyone in FL know where to get some good fresh stuff.

NOTE: Where we use to have Orange juice groves we now have empty foreclosures. Most of orange juice now comes form oversees <sad>

Thanks
Kevin

I've never seen big apple orchards in Florida, but I'm not familiar with the entire state. Most of the apples in the USA are grown in the midwest or the northwest. There are smaller orchards out east, too, of course. I don't think apples grow well in warm climates.

Back in the 80s and 90s breeders developed "low chill" apples for florida. They fruit very early but I don't think the fruit is very good quality. More for home gardens than commercial orchards.
