Crisafulli Groves has been serving the community Since the early 1900's
Crisafulli Groves has been in existence since the early 1900’s when our Grandfather, Carmelo Crisafulli, settled in Merritt Island, Florida and began to plant what would become some of the premier citrus fruit in the world! Grandpa and Grandma were known to us as Nona and Noni, as we are Italian. All of Nona and Noni’s children continued on in the citrus business and our Dad, Ben Crisafulli along with his cousin and brother propagated the Crisafulli Navel, an amazing orange that was just recently recognized by the Florida Department of Agriculture. We will be selling these trees, locally and will be able to ship to some areas of the United States, very soon.
Dad and Mom’s, (Mary Crisafulli), hard work and their faith in God, has left us a legacy of awesome oranges, grapefruit and specialty fruit that we offer for sale and will ship, just about anywhere. You and your friends and loved ones can enjoy the juicy, sweet Florida citrus that our family and area is famous for, in your own homes, for holidays, special events or just as a great, healthy way of living!
For many of our customers, their box of Crisafulli Groves fruit is a staple under the Christmas Tree or on the Thanksgiving table. I remember all the uncles, aunts, cousins, etc. coming over to Aunt Mary and Uncle Ben’s for the holidays and we’d all be walking around the yard with tangerine, or navel or grapefruit juice running all over our chins and down our arms, seriously, it doesn’t get much better than that!
My Sister, Rachel and I, leased the business to our previous manager, for a few years, but feel it is time to recapture the magic that we made possible for so many of our customers, in the past! We will be offering gift fruit packages and specialty items, such as honey, candy and Florida souvenirs, shipped to your door.
Please call our toll free number or order online and we’ll guarantee you a sweet, delicious treat that is as full of sweet, juicy goodness as it is of the love and care that our Grandparents and Mom and Dad, took to make this family business a reality!
