The Fruit


Fresh Florida Citrus

Peace River Packing specializes in oranges, tangerines, and grapefruit.  The growers of Peace River Packing produce a wide range of citrus varieties and due to the diverse timing of maturity for each variety, Peace River Packing enjoys a long harvesting season.  Oranges are juicy, tangy, and sweet, and are favored for making fresh squeezed orange juice.  Tangerines are sweeter than oranges, but also tend to be less tangy.  People enjoy tangerines because they are easy to peel and pull-apart, and they make a good healthy on-the-go snack.  Grapefruit are the large cross between an orange and pumelo, which is tangy, sweet, and extremely healthy, they are typically used for juice and fresh cut slices.
