While most of the nation shivers under winter's chill, Florida
harvests its citrus
sunshine. This winter, the crop is about two weeks later than usual.
Eight of the top 11
Florida citrus varieties are now in season. Look for navel oranges,
ruby red grapefruit,
tangerines and tangelos to be plentiful and relatively inexpensive in
supermarkets and
produce stands. Recent cold snaps have given the fruit extra
sweetness, too.
