Honeybells


Honeybell's are adored by many for their exceptional sweetness and juice. They are in fact a hybrid of an orange, grapefruit and tangerine made in the 1930's in Florida. Due to them being difficult to grow they are only available in January. 
Nearly all honeybells grow along the Indian river in Florida and growers are careful during harvesting as not to damage the bell shaped stem, the reason for their name.
Due to their juiciness its recommended to use a knife to slice segments over a plate and catch the juice. Here at the Orange Shop our grandfather used to joke that the only way to eat a honeybell is in the bathtub!

So why not start the new year with a delicious treat from Florida order your honeybells today.
