Family trip to the Showcase of Citrus in Clermont.

Tour a citrus plant, enjoy some orange picking or grab some souvenirs at one of these Florida orange groves.

By Gary McKechnie

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.

- Peter W. Cross for VISIT FLORIDA

When you visit, you’ll find that some include tours of the packing house, others include a walk through the orange groves in Florida where you can hand-pick fresh oranges 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 orchard operations are closed off-season (and sometimes on weekends), so be sure to check in advance before you visit one of these orange farms in Florida.

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 and Florida orange facts, storage, juicing, and more, read the VISIT FLORIDA FAQ About Florida Citrus.

Meanwhile, here are suggestions to help you find orange groves in Florida, as well as stores, shippers, and other citrus-related attractions.
