History

In Greek mythology Hercules was sent to retrieve three Golden Apples (tangerines?) from the Hesperides and bring them back to Eurystheus. Later Hercules presented Hades with a cornucopia of Golden Apples during his quest into the Underworld. Thus began a tradition of giving citrus gifts that continues today.

Tangerines were first brought to Florida in 1876. A large number of tangerine trees were later imported from Japan in the early part of the twentieth century. Florida is the largest producer of tangerines in the United States.

Because citrus trees bear both fruit and blossoms at the same time they have long been viewed as a symbol of fertility and bountiful crops. Our tradition of giving citrus as gifts at Thanksgiving, Hanukkah, Christmas and New Years is a part of this long history of thanks, hope and renewal.

Harvested in fall and winter, Florida Autumn Star Tangerines are prized as gifts offered in anticipation and hopefulness for the coming seasons.
