Honeybells, anyone?

does anyone have a good source they can recommend to purchase honeybell oranges?

i want to buy my parents a gift for their 64th wedding anniversary, and i thought a honeybell gift basket would be nice. also, i'd like some for my family to enjoy.

if you've never had them, they're the sweetest oranges you'll ever have in your life. the meyer lemon or key lime of the orange family. unfortunately, they're only available through late january.

honeybells, anyone?

yeah, technically they're not oranges. they're a cross between tangerines and grapefruit, but they look like oranges and taste like a very sweet one.

Tom, I can get them locally.

They are only available for a few weeks in January - the season is very short. PM me and I'll see what I can do.

oh man, you're so lucky,ss.

my floridian cousins brag about being able to walk into their backyards to pick fresh oranges and grapefruits from their own trees. i remember doing just that at my (adopted) grandparents house on anna maria island. outside of that, honeybells are the best oranges i've ever had outside of florida.i

AMI??? That's right here - we're neighbors! My favorite restaurant is on the island - Beach Bistro.

If you ever get down here, let me know. I'll give you a list of the best places to eat.

Honeybells are my favorites, and I can get them here maybe once a year. They're seasonal. The minute you think you can get something year 'round, guess what? Not gonna work.

My son does some contractor work for a man he has known for years. He winters in FL and while down there sends two boxes to my son. I get lucky and get a couple. Juice runs down my arms.
