We are new to FL and I have several friends/relatives who want citrus for Christmas. We are in Tallahassee. Does anyone know a local or online store that sends especially good citrus (wide variety, maybe even organic though that's not necessary).

Thanks!

      Harvey's Ruby Red Grapefruits are always top rate.

          Orange Blossom Groves in Clearwater is a wonderful citrus/fruit stand with fresh juices too. I've shopped there since childhood. For some reason their web address is under a different name:

            Meatn3, that's because they are no longer in business. I worked for them for 10 years(at another place they owned), and they sold the biz several years ago.

              Unfortunately, I don't think they are as good as they when they used to Orange Blossom. Now I think it is called Citrus Country. I always have shipped from the US 19 and Nursery location but not going to this year.

              Thanks so much for the tips everyone! I went with Harvey's b/c they were offering free shipping, though Sun Harvest seemed to have the best prices per pound.
