While walking through a family grove in the early 20th century, Louis and Ethel Hakes discovered a tree bearing "fruit distinctly different from the ordinary orange. Its color was deeper, the pulp tenderer, and the flavor exotic." What's more, this citrus delight, named after the Florida citrus pioneer instrumental in the Temple's 1917 debut on the market, peels like a tangerine. The couple considered it a fortunate find. We think you will, too!
Due to the seasonal unpredictability of this citrus variety, it is difficult to forecast its availability. It will be picked and shipped when its flavor and quality are at its peak to ensure that you receive only the freshest fruit.
