Honeybell Oranges are actually Tangelos, a Tangerine/Grapefruit hybrid. They are so unique they have their own special section in our catalog. Extra sweet and juicy, Honeybell Oranges are in great demand but are available for only a few short weeks each year in January and February. Favored by Florida citrus lovers around the globe, we recommend you order these beauties early for yourself, your family, friends and business associates. We even mail a special Honeybell Holiday gift card when you give Honeybells for Hanukkah and Christmas.
Monthly Fruit Clubs and Combos
It can be hard to choose from the many Florida citrus varieties. Fortunately, you don't have to! From our monthly Calendar Fruit Club to the Florida Fruit Sampler Plan we offer a variety of club options and combination fruit gift packs. Select " Combos and Clubs."
Florida citrus is a berry and it does not ripen off the tree or bush. As with strawberries or blueberries, once the fruit is picked, the sugars gradually break down and the fruit loses its full sweetness and flavor. That's why fresh is best.
At Florida Fruit Shippers® we never ship Florida citrus from storage. And unlike oranges and grapefruit sold at retail, our Florida citrus is never artificially colored, dyed or flavored. That's why we can say, "Unless you live in a grove, you can't eat fresher, sweeter fruit."
Florida's juiciest and most classically flavorful orange, Florida Valencia Oranges are usually seedless, oval in shape with a smooth, thin orange skin, and filled with sweet, delicious juice. Like other citrus varieties, Valencia Orange trees burst with fragrant blossoms every March and soon oranges begin to form at the blossom's stem. But unlike other varieties, mature fruit is just then fully ripening on the tree, taking a full year to develop its flavor and abundant juice. That full year soaking up the warm Florida sun and nurturing rains is why our Valencias are great for fresh eating and squeezing.
Is it their incredible sweetness? Is it the thin skin, which makes them so easy to peel? Or perhaps it’s because they’re so incredibly juicy. Whether you think it’s one of these reasons - or all of them - this is certain: our Florida Oranges and Ruby Red Grapefruit make a great gift that’s sure to please your friends and family - and don’t forget yourself!
Florida is the world’s second largest producer of citrus but Florida citrus ranks first in sweetness, juiciness and flavor. Florida’s warm sub-Tropical climate and abundant rains are perfect for growing citrus that is high in natural sugars and loaded with juice.
