Florida Citrus Makes a Great Christmas Gift

By: Jessica Roberts

If you enjoy giving friends and family unique presents throughout the holiday season, Florida citrus makes a great Christmas gift.  Fill stockings with fresh oranges, or ship a citrus gift box and handmade citrus candies to loved ones across the country.

Ridge Island Groves Gift Boxes

Enjoy a taste of Old Florida when you visit Ridge Island Groves in Haines City. Here you can grab fresh orange juice, or enjoy a custom-made citrus flavored soft serve ice cream. You can even pick-up a citrus-inspired gift on the way out.

But come this time of year, the age old Florida tradition of shipping citrus to loved ones around the county takes center stage. If a tray of oranges isn’t what you are looking for, they also ship ruby red grapefruit. Can’t decide between the 2? A mixed tray of citrus goodness dubbed the Triple Treat might be what you’re looking for. Also available for shipping is their raw and unfiltered orange blossom honey, or their “Florida in a Jar” mix of various marmalades, jellies, and spreads.
