Where can I buy Honeybell oranges in NJ?

January is Honeybell Orange time. You can get them by mail, but does anyone know a place in New Jersey
that sells them. They are juicy and delicious. If I have to resort to mail order any suggestions?

  1. I've seen them from time to time in the supermarkets. Whole Foods will probably have them at some point.

    1. Sickles in Little Silver probably has them.

        How about Delicious Orchards in Colt's Neck?

        1. re: fershore

          Confirmed. Sickles has them for $1.99 per pound.

        2. Just saw them today at Mccaffreys supermarket in west windsor near princeton.

          1. QVC always has them when they are in season. You will pay a shipping charge, but it may be worth it.

              I've had the Honeybell's from QVC (a few years ago) and they were SO much better than the Honeybells I've bought locally in NJ ... a delicious treat.

            2. Honeybells are being offered on QVC right now!

              1. Whole Foods in Middletown had them today. $2.49 / lb. They're about two to a pound, so a buck and a quarter each. A lot cheaper than QVC.

                  Aldi's had them for 1.89/lb. and the "Cuties" for 1.99/bag today.

                2. Some places are selling them under the name "tangelo". See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tangelo

                    I saw at Delicious Orchards in Colts Neck today that they are selling both Honeybells from Florida and Minneola Tangelos from California. I believe that "Honeybell" and "Minneola Tangelo" are different names for the same Duncan grapefruit x Dancy tangerine hybrid (see http://edis.ifas.ufl.edu/ch072 ).

                      That's what they told me at Whole Foods.

                      1. re: cantkick

                        I bought Minneolas twice this season, once at Trader Joe's and once at Whole Foods.
                        Both times juicy but not very sweet.

                        Eh experience not a wow.
