Sweet, colorful Florida Tangerines are the first Florida fruit to mature each season and among the last to end in May. Maturing through the season, sweet and colorful, they are available November to May.
Thin-skinned Florida Tangerines are very easy to peel and section, making their sun-drenched flavor readily available on demand. Sure to become one of your favorite gifts to give and get!
Florida Tangerines are available November through May to the lower 48 US States and Canada.
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, winter and Spring, Florida Tangerines are prized as gifts offered in anticipation and hopefulness for the coming seasons.
