‘Tis the Season, once again to enjoy one of Florida’s gems: the honeybell. Check out a previous blog entry here about this delicious, juicy fruit that we are lucky to enjoy this time every year.
Three Fun Facts about Honeybells
1. Honeybell fruit is the size of an adult fist and contains more juice than flesh.
2. Honeybells oranges are a tad more expensive than other oranges. It is because of the care employed to bring each fruit to perfection as it ripens before clipping the delicate fruit from the stem one by one, then packing them carefully to avoid bruising and ruining the premium fruit during shipping.
3. Aside from eating them fresh out of hand, you may also use Honeybells in all sorts of dishes. You can toss them in fruit and green salads, mix them to make fruit drinks, make marinades and vinaigrettes, and use them to flavor meat and chicken recipes.
