Citrus City is a census-designated place (CDP) in Hidalgo County, Texas, United States. The population was 941 at the 2000 census. It is part of the McAllenEdinburgMission Metropolitan Statistical Area. The town was founded in 1943 by Howard Moffitt, a builder known for his vernacular Moffitt cottage architectural style, as part of a planned regional orange and grapefruit growing community. The local irrigation system proved to be too saline for fruit production, and the plans for a large town were revised. A few Moffitt houses survive in Citrus City.[3]
