Visit a Florida Citrus Grove

By: Gary McKechnie

ADD TO FAVORITES
Tour a citrus plant, enjoy fresh fruits or pick up Florida citrus souvenirs at one of these Florida groves.

There’s no perfume as sweet as the fragrance of citrus blossoms, and few sights as beautiful as a citrus grove bursting with oranges, grapefruits, lemons, limes, and tangerines.

Here's a list, thanks to the Florida Department of Citrus, of citrus-affiliated organizations, many of which have been in the same family for generations.

Some include tours of the packinghouse, others include a walk through the groves and the chance to hand-pick fruit fresh from the tree, a few have on-site restaurants, and nearly all include retail stores where you’ll find orange blossom honey, candies, ice cream fudge, and a wide assortment of Florida souvenirs with a citrus twist.

Note that some operations are closed off-season and sometimes on weekends, so be sure to check in advance when they’re open.

Also. inquire when their harvest will be at its peak, because there’s nothing quite like seeing a citrus grove going (and growing) strong.

And for an in-depth feature on citrus seasons, storage, juicing, and more, read the VISIT FLORIDA feature FAQ About Florida Citrus.
