SDA Citrus Sale

Citrus 2

The St. John’s Seventh-day Adventist Church is proud to bring Indian River Florida citrus to our friends in Newfoundland!  The Indian River Citrus District produces some of the worlds finest quality citrus.  Perhaps the best and premium citrus the region is known for is its Grapefruit.[1]

The quality of citrus flavor is determined by the content and ratio of sugar, acidity, and aromatic or bitter flavors in the fruit.   The sugar content is tested and acidity measured again and again until our suppliers are convinced that the optimum balance has been achieved.  Once this balance has been reached, the tree ripened fruit is hand picked, transported to a packer, washed, and coated with a layer of water-soluble wax to enhance appearance and protect freshness. (This wax is easily removed with tap water).  The unripened fruit is left on the tree for later harvest.

From the packing house, the fruit is loaded on a truck and shipped directly to us in Newfoundland.  Each load of citrus is monitored to ensure optimal temperatures are maintained for freshness.  Once the  boxes of citrus are unloaded and checked by our volunteers, they are ready for pick up.  The fruit is ready to be eaten!!!
