A Look Inside the Groves – January 2019 Hale Groves Update
A thin skin makes Honeybells easy to peel, but also makes them far more delicate in the field. We cradle each individual Honeybell by hand and pick them by clipping the stem. This method is slower, but we do it to ensure that your Honeybells always arrive in perfect condition.
Honeybells are a cross between the richly flavored Dancy Tangerine, and the honey-sweet Duncan Grapefruit. The result is a 3-inch delight that is bell-shaped, easy to peel, has very few seeds, and a treasured taste.
These bright orange, ripe Honeybells in our groves have a very short season. They are ready to pick in January and, if we are all lucky, an extra week in February. The limited availability and stunning juicy flavor make Honeybells a rare treat indeed.
