For the better part of the 20th century and on into the 21st, Florida dominated the honey market. As early as the late 1800's, Florida citrus and honey, a sweetly symbiotic pair, were shipped north together. Within the confines of the Honey Tangerine peel, you will find a similar combination: a uniquely bold, sweet, honey-like flavor amid the plump texture of Indian River citrus. When it comes to tangerines, this one is what all the buzz is about!
Available February and March
While walking through a family grove in the early 20th century, Louis and Ethel Hakes discovered a tree bearing "fruit distinctly different from the ordinary orange. Its color was deeper, the pulp tenderer, and the flavor exotic." What's more, this citrus delight, named after the Florida citrus pioneer instrumental in the Temple's 1917 debut on the market, peels like a tangerine. The couple considered it a fortunate find. We think you will, too!
Due to the seasonal unpredictability of this citrus variety, it is difficult to forecast their availability. They will be picked and shipped when their flavor and quality is at its peak to ensure that you receive only the freshest fruit.
