Rotary Fresh Citrus Sale 2011 – 2012

The Rotary Club of Springfield Township hosts a monthly fruit sale from November to March each year. The fresh citrus comes directly from a Florida fruit orchard. The Rotarians with the aid of some students from Carson Valley Children’s Aid unload the fruit into Flourtown Fire Company’s firehouse for our loyal customers to pick up on Friday evening and Saturday morning.

In November and December we sell Navel Oranges and Ruby Red Grapefruit. In January, Heavenly Honey Bells and Ruby Red Grapefruit are sold, and in February and March Temple Oranges and Ruby Red Grapefruits are sold.

Navel Oranges: big beautiful navels kick off the orange season with an explosion of sweet juicy flavor.

Ruby Red Grapefruit: the refreshing sweet taste of this all-season citrus is matched only by the vitamins tucked away under its rosy skin.

Temple Oranges: rich deep color and a taste to match, the easy to peel Temples are a favorite with citrus connoisseurs.

Heavenly Honeybells: get ready for a treat! Exceptionally sweet, unbelievably juicy! They are available only in January – but worth the wait! Order now for our highly anticipated Honeybell Oranges. These exceptionally juicy, mouth-watering fruit are a really special treat. The flavor is sweet and really unique.

Honeybells are large bell shaped hybrids that are a cross between the super sweet Duncan Grapefruit and the delicately flavored Dancy Tangerine. They’re called “honeybells” because of their honey-sweet flavor and unique bell shape. They’re easy to peel, or can be sliced, and are usually seedless.

This citrus delicacy is a rare pleasure – they are the most difficult variety of orange to grow and harvest and are in short supply. They are available ONLY in January, so order now for both you and for friends.

  1. Mary L. Silverstein says:

    I ordered a case of Navels over the phone. Received no confirmation. That’s ok as long as the order went through. I know where to come and when as I did it last year, but I can’t remember whether it’s cash, check or credit card or if all are ok. Can you please let me know?? Mary

  2. Hi Mary, thanks for your continued support of the fruit sale, we’ll check on your order and response in a separate email to confirm your order. We apologize, but due to the volume of orders on the phone and that we’re all volunteers we can’t send confirmations of every phone order. A check or cash are the accepted methods of payment at the fruit sale. Thanks again and see you at the firehouse. STRC

    I forgot to pick up my oranges on 12-17-11 is there still a possibility of buying some or have they been sold?

  6. Hi Colleen, thank you for your support, I’ve forwarded your message onto the Fruit Sale Chair so he respond to you directly. Generally, any fruit left by 10AM on Saturday morning is sold to first come, first serve. But again, he’ll respond to you directly if that’s not the case.
