The Sun Harvest Citrus Story

The Sun Harvest Citrus story began in 1940, when Robert Edsall, Sr. planted his first grove in Vero Beach, Florida. The Indian River location had been declared optimum for growing fruit with a unique, exceptionally sweet blend of flavor. Robert's diversity in variety selection quickly proved successful and, decades later, he passed the Edsall Groves legacy on to his son, Bobby. Today, Robert's grandson, David McKenzie, oversees the groves.

In 1990, the business took on a new dimension when the family decided to offer the extraordinary taste of their citrus to the public by building its own packinghouse and retail store in Fort Myers, Florida. The result? Sun Harvest Citrus, born under the leadership of Robert's granddaughter, Sandy McKenzie Nicely.
