Description
This film chronicles the history of oranges, beginning with animation showing that, "Once upon a time... a miracle occurred and the first orange was born."

Next, authentic Seminoles eat oranges, followed by more shots of the "Indians." Then, viewers see African-Americans loading barrels of oranges on a floating dock. A great train sequence follows, showing Florida East Coast Railroad Engine No. 153, as a load of oranges is picked up from a horse-drawn wagon. The rest of the film is processing and packaging.
