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 are as beautiful as a citrus grove bursting with oranges, grapefruits, lemons, limes, and tangerines.

Courtesy of the Florida Department of Citrus, here’s a list of citrus-affiliated organizations, many of which have been in the same family for generations.

When you visit, you’ll find that some include tours of the packing house, others include a walk through the groves to hand-pick fruit fresh from the tree, a few will feature 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.

Keep in mind that some operations are closed off-season (and sometimes on weekends), so be sure to check in advance before you visit.

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

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