Sun Harvest Citrus in Fort Myers, Florida is a magical place that our family loves to visit as often as possible. Besides having the best oranges and grapefruits in town, they also have a spectacular gift shop, bakery, post office, various juices, ice cream, free juice samples and so much more.
Fair warning ~ Don’t be in a hurry when you visit because there is plenty to keep everyone entertained.
Let me show you around.
First and foremost, Sun Harvest Citrus makes the most phenomenal milkshakes – period! Our family favorite is their orange milkshake that taste like a creamcicle.
If milkshakes are not your thing, they also have soft serve ice cream in several different flavors as well as a vast assortment of decadent pastries.
Let me just say, YUM!
Second, Sun Harvest Citrus hands down makes the best orange juice. But here’s where things get even better – they don’t only make plain orange juice (which is spectacular unto itself). Oh no…they step it up a notch by combining Strawberries with Oranges and Cranberries with Oranges taking OJ to the next level. You must taste to believe, my friends. These two juice variations are ah~mazing.
Here’s some more good news, you can purchase their juice on site. If you’re not sure which one you prefer, no problem, they have that covered. There is an entire tasting station devoted to sharing their juice with you at no charge. Taste away and leave with your favorite juice in a half or full gallon. Bring your coolers, because you’re not going to leave with just one, trust me.
Fun Fact – Their juice is made on site.
There is a glass partition that separates the juice plant from the store. You can watch the employees packaging the juice which is pretty cool for both kids and adults.
It’s kind of like an aquarium, but instead of fish there are people and instead of water there is juice. So basically it’s nothing like an aquarium…it’s just a glass partition.
Still it’s fun to watch!
They also have this fabulous gift shop where you can purchase all kinds of things you don’t necessarily need, but surely will want.
And then you can mail them to friends and family at the US Post Office that is housed inside the building. These people really know how to make things easy.
Last but surely not least ~ You can even send fruit to people you love.
Everyone knows nothing says “I love you” like a basket of fruit. Well…maybe jewelry – but for the sake of this post let’s just stick with fruit.
Their fruit boxes come in a wide variety of arrangements, making it easy to pick the perfect gift for pretty much anyone, especially for those “impossible to buy for” people.
So there you have it. If you are visiting Southwest Florida this should absolutely be on your list of things to do. Let Sun Harvest Citrus provide a break from the heat and entertain you for a while ~ you’ll be glad you stopped by.
Until next time…Be blessed, stay blessed and remember if you don’t laugh at yourself someone will do it for you!
