Make fresh squeezed Valencia orange juice with our incredibly sweet Florida oranges.

What is a Valencia orange? Valencia oranges are one of the most popular citrus fruits: incredibly sweet, thin-skinned and dripping with juice. Valencia orange juice can't be beat when it comes to freshly-squeezed juices. These Indian River oranges from Harvey's Groves are a must-have gourmet fruit for citrus fruit enthusiasts.

Valencias are also known as summer oranges, as they're one of the last oranges of the season. These Florida oranges are available March through April after other citrus varieties have completed their season. Fragrant Valencia oranges have sweet, juicy and tender flesh and a bright, smooth and pebbled surface. Picked fresh from the Valencia orange trees at our family-owned orchards, Valencia oranges are the perfect fruit for snacking, and they're the go-to fruit to make the best fresh orange juice.

Our Indian River oranges are what gave us our start back in 1926 when Roy and Blanche Harvey opened the first roadside fruit stand in Florida. We sold fresh orange juice, squeezed by hand, for five cents a glass. Today, our Valencia oranges are still the perfect oranges for creating the most delicious freshly squeezed juice. These Florida oranges offer drip-down-your-chin juiciness whether they’re eaten by hand or savored in orange juice over a Sunday brunch.

Some interesting facts about oranges like the Valencia are that the original Valencia orange was discovered in Valencia, Spain, where it received its name. It’s known that Florida oranges are a wonderful source of Vitamin C, but they're also rich in fiber and folate, and contain antioxidants that help boost immunity. Valencias are a popular snack to pack in lunchboxes, backpacks and briefcases. Valencia oranges are a timeless, traditional treat that are enjoyed by young and old alike.
