The Limited Edition Florida Citrus Fruit

Ruby Red Grapefruit are wonderful, Sunburst Tangerines terrific, Florida Navel Oranges are special – especially the Red Navels, BUT, HoneyBells are the juiciest, sweetest, most tender and succulent fruit we produce and are, darn it, only available for several weeks in January. Probably, to give us something in January to look forward to.

Q. What is a HoneyBell?
A. A hybrid of a Duncan Grapefruit, one of Florida’s earliest citrus varieties (itself produced from a natural cross of a sweet orange and Pomello) this very juicy, white fleshed fruit with incredible flavor was combined with the Dancy Tangerine, also noted for flavor and juice (see photo).The Dancy is where the HoneyBell gets its redish orange color and bulging neck at the stem end that makes it bell shaped. Officially named Minneola Tangelo, everyone that has the distinct pleasure of eating one, affectionately calls them "HoneyBells".

Q. Availability, only and always January?
A. You caught us. Most years there are some HoneyBells ripe enough to pick and start shipping the last week in December and we often have some wonderful fruit to ship in early, early February. But the February fruit is usually spoken for by orders we accept in January so please don’t wait till then to order. Nature isn’t always forgiving when we try to schedule it too closely so we say January.

Rare, Juicy-Sweet HoneyBells
This limited edition fruit is a treat citrus connoisseurs look forward to every January. Honeybells are a treasured rare hybrid of a Dancy Tangerine and Duncan Grapefruit, with a unique bell shape. This combination resulted in a sweeter fruit, loaded with juice, featuring an intense unique flavor of their own. So juicy, we tuck a free bib that is absolutely necessary and a delightful booklet all about HoneyBells inside every order. So don't wait! HoneyBells are available for a few short weeks in January only, then they're all gone until next year.
Available in January Only.

The Blue Heron/Floribbean Flo’s Story

We began shipping our fresh Florida citrus by mail order back in 1946. Winter visitors to our  grove wanted us to ship gifts and baskets of our fresh navel oranges, tangerines and grapefruit back to their friends and relatives “up North”, so we started our mail order business. Wasn’t long before folks started telephoning their orders in from home and we had to put a catalog together  so they could get their gifts and baskets of citrus shipped by mail order whether they visited Florida or not! Many of those people have ordered our citrus by mail since the earliest days and still order their fresh Florida citrus from us year after year. They say we’re still be best source of citrus for their own use and for gifts and baskets they want to send to special people. We appreciate that high opinion and we work hard to earn their accolade as “the best source of Florida citrus”. Some things have changed since the earliest days. HoneyBell oranges were not as popular then. Navels were the standard for early in the season and Valencia oranges ruled later in the year. HoneyBell oranges started becoming popular 10 to 15 years ago and now, every year starting in December and through January, all we hear is HoneyBells, HoneyBells and more HoneyBells. Shaped like a Bell, sweet as Honey, HoneyBells are king but only for a month or two. Navels, Valencias and some of the hybrids like Ortaniques and Temples rule the Florida Citrus Kingdom the rest of the season. White Grapefruit is still available and the choice of many but the Ruby Red Grapefruit is most people’s choice as best grapefruit. Less acidic, Ruby Red Grapefruit tend to be a little sweeter than most white grapefruit. Ruby Red Grapefruit is prettier on the plate, too.
