Fruit from 10 Florida groves has been cleared for harvest, leading the way for the first out-of-state shipments since a tree disease known as citrus canker forced an embargo last week, state agriculture officials said Sunday. Federal and state inspectors said they have not found any trace of citrus canker in the 10 groves, spread through six counties.
