honeybells are an indescribably sweet and juicy citrus fruit. some seasons i miss them altogether because of a way too brief season. i take my chances buying honeybells at our local grocery stores. it they are too seedy or not sweet or juicy enough, i haven't lost much. when they are wonderful, i can immediately buy up a whole bunch to take home. what i won't do is take a chance on cushman's, harry and david or qvc with a 40-60 dollar purchase that can so easily go wrong....

My son informed me today that he will be getting his right from the grower this coming week. I can hardly wait. It's like being in heaven when one of those touch your palate.

Trader Joe's had Honeybells (the Minneola variety) in their store today for 69 cents each. They are extremely juicy and sweet! While not taken right from the tree, I wouldn't refuse one!
