In the early 1700's, a fleet of Spanish galleons, loaded with gold, silver, and jewels, were shipwrecked off the coast of Indian River County, earning that portion of Florida's seaboard the name "Treasure Coast". Fortune seekers have recovered much of the loot, but there's still a gem to be found on the mainland: our Ruby grapefruit. It's a remarkably delicious find, loaded with flavor, vitamin C, fiber, antioxidants, and a pulp that sparkles like the stone it's named for. Treasure hunters, your search is over!
Available November through May
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 in February. They will be picked and shipped when their flavor and quality is at its peak to ensure that you receive only the freshest fruit.
