CROP REPORT

September 17, 2021 Update:

imagesCA3CZNAK Navel with blossoms.jpg (10 KB)Welcome back to our 44th CITRUS SEASON and thanks for choosing Al's Family Farms! God's goodness is so evident in our groves as once again as we had another terrific growing season. Our local navel crop looks better than I've seen in many years. I'm so proud of the the team who worked so hard in the grove. Matt and I tested a grapefruit this week and although not fully ripe yet we  ate the whole thing. We've missed them and can't wait to once again eat a fresh grapefruit right off the tree everyday.  

Something New: Al's Citrus Store Reopens one week earlier than usual this year
... We have some fruit ripening early enough to go ahead and get started making fresh squeezed juice again. Our local customers are "chomping at the bit" for juice so we are going to have a little "Celebrate Fall at the Red Barn" on the grounds on Saturday Oct. 23 to kickoff the new citrus season. If you are close enough to visit, we'll have early ripening, Navels, Tangerines and Grapefruit available in our store and pumpkins next to the grill too. You'll get to meet "Dooley Dog", that's Matt and Mae's new Labrador puppy.  Matt will be giving hay rides on "Suzie" and they'll be face painting and snacks for the kids. 

For those of you who need delivery we will be picking  Navels , Ruby Reds , Sunshine Tangerines and Navels by Nov. 3rd for shipping for those of you who simply can't wait any longer for the taste of Al's fresh, Indian River Citrus. Keep in mind Thanksgiving through Christmas is when our Indian River Navels really reach their peak of ripeness. Look for those super-juicy Honeybells to come in right after Christmas.

Club members can expect to receive the first box by mid-November but be sure to renew by November 5 to get the extra FREE 8 oz. jar of Orange Blossom Honey just for ordering early.

Wow, can you believe Easter is just around the corner (April 4th)? Right now our citrus trees are in full bloom so there's no mistaking it’s springtime in the grove. We've already began harvesting and shipping sweet, juicy Valencia Oranges along with our world famous Ruby Red Grapefruit. Valencias spend more time on the tree than any other variety and wow are they making some incredible juice for our store.

Click here for FREE SHIPPING on Easter Mega-Tray

Our 2021 crop of "heirloom Temple Oranges has been one of best in years but we are selling out fast so it's LAST CALL for Temple Oranges. Temples are actually a Tangor- Half Orange/Half Tangerine. This heirloom variety is sweet, juicy and easy to peel, They have an amazing flavor and aroma like no other.

Florida Peaches
Florida Peaches

What’s happening right now? Locally grown, Florida Peaches grown right here in Fort Pierce should be available once again available in our store soon! What makes them so special? Our Florida Peaches ripen a full month earlier than peaches grown anywhere else in the world. Although petite in size, Florida peaches are actually higher in sugar content. 

We’ve been shipping, Chin Drip’n Georgia Peaches in July for over 20 years, but this is just the forth season shipping locally grown, Florida Peaches! Try a box and see for yourself why we constantly sell out of them in our store.

We’re thankful for your loyal patronage the last 43 years. It’s been a privilege to grow, pack and ship Florida’s finest gift fruit to you for generations. We believe in good ol’ fashioned hard work with a genuine passion for quality. It’s our family’s 43 year tradition to carefully select, hand-pack and ship Indian River citrus grown mostly right here in our beloved Vero - Ft. Pierce area groves.

May God bless you with the gift of health,

  

P.S. Throughout the coronavirus outbreak our customers have been letting us know how grateful they are that we can ship so many items that help boost the body’s natural immune system directly to their homes and their loved ones. Everyone knows oranges, grapefruit and tangerines are loaded with healthful Vitamin C and powerful antioxidants. Other fruits and vegetables, even honey all contribute to good health. Eat healthy, taking good care of your body and it will take care of you.

February 11, 2021 Crop Update

Click to view Crop Update Postcard

Current FAQ's- What varieties are still in season?...Can we still get Florida Honeybells?...What's next? February is TEMPLE TIME! Florida's most flavorful, "Heirloom" eating orange is shipping now! Did the rest of the Florida Honeybells ever ripen up? Yes ... a few keep ripening up each week.

My son Matt's addicted to Temple Oranges! (They're actually a Tangor- Half Orange/Half Tangerine) Like all growers, he's a big Temple fan who raves about their incredible aroma and amazing, full bodied flavor. He is constantly "reintroducing" our store customers to this ol' time, Florida favorite. It's zipper skin makes it a delight to peel and eat out of hand or squeeze into incredible juice.

Florida Honeybell Update-We finished shipping "J" (January) and "LJ" (late Jan-early Feb) dated Florida Honeybell packages. By the time you receive this mail we should have completed "F" (February) dated packages as well. We've reopened Honeybells for limited ordering. We'll keep clipping them as they ripen 'til they're gone.
*Please keep in mind the U.S. is currently experiencing record cold temps in February that have delayed some shipments to affected areas.

Valencia Oranges are ready early! They're the world's most popular juice orange. Florida is renowned for growing the juiciest and sweetest Valencias, literally bursting with rich, golden juice. They're also terrific sliced in cool, fruit salads. We typically ship Valencias from late February right on into June.

February is NATIONAL GRAPEFRUIT MONTH! Now is when our locally grown, Indian River Ruby Red Grapefruit reach their absolute prime of juicy goodness.

That's all for now and may God Bless you with the gift of good health!

 

 

February 1, 2021 Crop Update

I must say we are feeling a bit relieved to report that most of our "J" (January dated) honeybell packages have already been shipped or will be shipped out within the next 3 days. This has definitely been the lightest crop I've seen since the 2004 hurricanes but we are so blessed to have had some nice honeybells ripening up each day as we continue getting all the reserved shipments out. 

FYI- If you created an account on our website you can always check the status of your order by clicking on 'View Order Status' or call us at 800-544-3366 and we can check it for you by phone as well.

February is when Temple Oranges steal the show with their zipper skins and tangy-sweet flavor. Temples are also known as the "Queen of the Crop". They are every grower's favorite since they're easy to peel with an incredible aroma and rich, full bodied flavor. We just picked the first bins of Temple Oranges yesterday and we are running them this morning. Temples are my Matt and my favorite orange. (Most growers love Temples best!)  We'll continue to pack Glory Orri, Mandarin Oranges as they ripen up and of course our Ruby Red Grapefruit just get sweeter by the day. It's OK to order Valencia Oranges now for those of you who love to squeeze your own O.J. We should be able to begin harvesting some Valencias Oranges in the next few weeks.

 

January 7, 2021 Crop Update

The most frequently asked questions here lately are: 1) Are those sensational, new, Glory Orris still available for shipping? And, 2) When may we expect to receive the Honeybells?
Answers: YES, If you're new to Glory Orris they're our newest, amazing, super-sweet & juicy, easy-peeling, seedless Mandarin Oranges. Can you tell we are extremely proud of them? Glory Orris are a huge hit in our store and are in their prime for shipping now through January.
We are currently shipping Glory Orris, Navels and Ruby Red Grapefruit every day except Sunday.

Most of the Honeybell trees bloomed a little later last spring than the spring prior so we have to wait on them a bit longer to fully ripen. A few trees are ready to harvest now so some of you, who ordered earliest may start receiving them. However, those of you who ordered recently must please BE PATIENT as we simply cannot rush nature and need to ship earlier orders first. We must wait until the whole crop ripens up before harvesting and shipping really gets into full swing. Rest assured, my son Matt and I are out checking the Honeybell crops everyday and we'll keep you updated as the harvest ramps up. Again, please be patient, we must remind you we are a small family farm.

Although we're a small, family business, we're big hearted and very passionate about what we do! With Covid out there, people are shipping more citrus then usual so we're harvesting, washing, sorting and packing orders every day except Sunday. It's a long day that typically runs from 7:30 am - 8:30 pm. We have to work this long and hard as there are so many orders in line to ship. The first Honeybell orders we ship are those of you who ordered them before Thanksgiving. The next group will be those who ordered on or before Dec. 10. We typically get all caught up by the last week of January. "LJ" (Late January) orders ship in the final week of January or first week of February.

I know you want your fruit early, you don't want "early" fruit so we have to let them ripen first, then ship as quickly as a small family farm can without compromising on quality. Unlike Amazon, we can only go as fast as fruit quality and careful packing allows.

FYI- We let the recent cold blast clear out up north and just shipped the last of the "after Christmas orders".
Good News- If you need fruit faster- Local Navel oranges, Ruby Red Grapefruit and Glory Orri's are all available for shipping now!

I tested these Navels in late September and they were ripening up right on schedule!  Their green color is just now beginning to break to yellow/orange.

Valencia Oranges
Valencia Oranges

The Valencias Oranges we're harvesting now are on the oldest trees in the juice grove. Since they're grown to produce sweet, freshly-squeezed juice for our store we are picking the thinnest skinned oranges we have with the highest possible juice content. It's not about big and beautiful here, it's what's inside that really counts when you're trying to make the world's finest O.J.! (You may actually receive a few more oranges per tray than usual.) FYI- Item# JO44 (App. 36 + lbs.) is a great value. You get a big box of late season oranges and save 10%!

 

Red Grapefruit
Red Grapefruit

Red Grapefruit are even better than I expected this late in the season. For the end of April these Indian River grapefruit are truly amazing...so sweet and juicy! We're picking the last few rows of trees now so be sure and stock up for the summer before they're gone.

 

Florida Peaches

Fort Pierce Peaches are still available in the store only. We pick them every other day as they ripen but this is probably our last week.

 

Vidalia Sweet Onions
Vidalia Onions

Vidalia Sweet Onions are almost ready! My family will drive up to Vidalia, Georgia after "church online" this Sunday, May 3. Sharon, Brad, Matt, Mae (Matt's fiance) and I will be personally packing them for you all on Monday and Tuesday in Georgia. When finished we will head back on Tuesday to Fort Pierce with a truck load of fresh Vidalia Onions for the store.

 

Florida Peaches
Chin Drip'nTM Peaches

Georgia Chin Drip'nTM Peaches should be ready for shipping around mid-June. Our freestone Georgia peaches typically ripen by Father's Day. We only ship the very best. They are the finest peaches grown anywhere in the world. Chin Drip'n Peaches are a special, healthful treat your family and friends won't soon forget.

 

 

That's all for now!

Oh those glorious Honeybells! The store is buzzing with people as our roadside sign now reads- "LOCAL HONEYBELLS ARE IN!"  Honeybell packing and shipping is now in full swing as we pack orders based on the date they were received. We have already shipped out everyone's early Honeybells ("EJ") and those of  you who chose "J" for January and ordered before Christmas are in the process of being packed this week and next. That's actually a bit early for this small, family farm but our packers have been willing to work late hours to fill up the daily truck. We typically get all caught up shipping Honeybells by the third week of January.  "LJ" (Late January) orders ship for arrival in late January to early February.

Running the 2020 Honeybells

We appreciate our loyal Al's customers who want their fruit early but don't want "early" fruit! We let fruit ripen first, then ship as quickly as this small family farm can without compromising on quality. Good things come to those who wait... Unlike Amazon, we choose to only ship as fast as fruit quality and careful packing allows.

2019 Honeybells ready for harvesting
 

FYI- Honeybell season always ends early. If you wish to order Al's Florida Honeybells please do not delay...They always sell out fast!

 Navel Oranges... Navel season ends in January but I hope to keep shipping them as long as the supply lasts. The Honeybell/Navel combo package is a great way to enjoy both delicious varieties in one box and Save $5 while its on special.

Al's Family Farms 2018-19 Catalog

Packinghouse Report- If you haven't yet done so, its not too late! The ladies on the phones are staying busy as folks place their orders for Christmas and the Holidays, Everything is running smoothly in the packinghouse as we work like Santa's elves to be sure everyone's box of "Florida Sunshine" arrives by Christmas. The weather has been very cooperative so my harvesters are able to pick fresh fruit each day. The Navels and Ruby Red Grapefruit are increasing in sugar content each day.

Honeybells for the Holidays” are always the perfect last minute gift as they naturally don’t arrive until January. Since Honeybells are our most asked for variety but they don't ripen until January here is how to give Honeybells for the Holidays: First- they'll know you remembered before Christmas since we immediately send out first class, over-sized, Honeybell gift announcments (view card) naming you the generous sender of their precious gift to come. Second- In January, after the other gifts are all but forgotten, your glorious gift of Royal Honeybells arrives making you the center of attention!

CHRISTMAS GIFT SHIPPING PLAN- Since Christmas falls on Wednesday this year, we're going to KEEP ON PICKING & SHIPPING FRUIT THRU FRIDAY, DEC 20. All last minute orders also receive a FREE, First Class Gift Announcement notifying your recipients you ordered their gift and its on its way.

Honeybells are ripening nicely and once the cooler weather sticks around it will brighten their peel so we can begin the harvest. I'm guessing we will start clipping Honeybells in early January and keep clipping fruit daily until everyone's order has been shipped. Clipping is tedious and they have to be packed with great care so it usually takes us about 3 weeks to get everyone's Honeybells shipped out but this extraordinary gift is truly worth the wait.

Rest assured, my packing team and I will be putting an extra measure of care into every gift box we ship for you. Just sit back, relax and wait for the happy "thank you's".

That's all for now, Merry Christmas, and may God Bless you with the gift of health,

Late Honeybells
Late Season Honeybells

The trees are beginning to bloom as Spring-like weather arrives early at Al's. Here is our latest Crop update...

It's an extremely rare event, but due to the unusually cold weather in January, we still have a very limited supply of very nice Honeybells available in our store and for shipping. We had a small second bloom last April and that's what my guys are harvesting daily. We get them in and they are gone the same day so don't delay, get to the store or order online right away as this can't go on much longer. CLICK HERE FOR MORE HONEYBELLS!


The Honeybells keep coming in 2019!

Another cold weather bonus: We are harvesting our last Navel trees of the season in the next few days. It's Last call for Navel Oranges...Click here if you want one more super-sweet box before they're gone.

February is when Temple Tangerines steal the show with their zipper skins and tangy-sweet flavor. Temples are also known as the "Queen of the Crop". They are every grower's favorite since they're easy to peel with an incredible aroma and rich, full bodied flavor.

Mid-February–March are peak times to enjoy our rarest variety- "Unique Oranges" aka Ortaniques. What’s a Unique? Just as Honeybells resulted from combining a Dancy Tangerine and a Duncan grapefruit, Uniques resulted from combining wild, Jamaican Tangerines with a Mandarin Sweet Orange. The resulting fruit is very similar and just as fabulous. The Unique Orange's deep orange color and exquisite, super-sweet flavor has no rival. Click here to order Unique Oranges !

EMAIL SPECIAL- $7 Savings! Now is the only time of year you can enjoy both of February's finest, Florida varieties at the same time, and TAKE $7 OFF  Unique & Temple Combo. This customized, 1/2 Bushel (2 tray) box comes packed with one tray of premium-sized, Unique Oranges plus one tray of Temple Tangerines in the same carton. It's the perfect way to celebrate both best selling fruits in one convenient package.

Great News- February is National Grapefruit Month and our Indian River, Ruby Red Grapefruit are still going strong! Ruby Reds
