Temple Oranges and Ruby Red Grapefruit
Temple Oranges and Ruby Red Grapefruit are our most popular combination every spring.
Your order is protected with the LocalHarvest money back guarantee.
Temple Oranges are an heirloom variety discovered in Jamaica in 1896. Imported into Florida in 1916, it was one of the most popular fresh fruit variety in the 1940's and 50's. They're very delicate, so commercial shippers have moved on to varieties that are more suited to long-distance marketing and high-speed equipment, but our nice old machinery still runs them just fine, and we take great pains when shipping to ensure good arrival.
Combined with the ever-popular Ruby Red Grapefruit, this gift is always the best-sellers each spring. We've created many Temple-lovers over the years -- so take the plunge or surprise friends and family with a unique flavor experience.
Please Note: No further shipments to CA, TX, AZ, LA, NV or Canada for the remainder of the season. We'll resume next November.
The Orange Shop in Citra, Florida ships Gourmet Oranges, Indian River Grapefruit, Honeybells, and other delicacies from our groves throughout the country from November through May.
A Note on Package Weights: The weights listed are for use as guidelines when purchasing. The actual unit of measurement is the size of the shipping box itself. Smaller fruit will weigh less than the average for a given size box.
A Note on Shipping Schedules: Citrus fruit is perishable, and many of the heirloom varieties we ship are extremely delicate. So, we don\'t pick them off the tree until we receive your order. We then bring them in to the packinghouse where they\'re processed and packed, then ship them by ground delivery to ensure safe arrival.
