Helping Papa Plant a New Sugarbelle Grove

More New Growth!

In June, 2015, we planted more Sugarbelle trees. They should be ready for a Christmastime 2017 harvest.

Sugarbelles are a relatively new variety- a cross between a Clementine Tangerine and a Honeybell!  We call them Honeybell’s Little Cousins!

3-1/2 year old grandbabies, Jay and Aria are ”helping” their Papa plant a new baby Sugarbelle tree. They actually planted several all by themselves, with proud Papa looking on.



One year-old Reed is supervising… making sure Papa does it right!

A new generation of citrus growers?

Homegrown Honeybells at Dooley Groves!

Come and see what a real orange grove is all about! U-Pick Honeybells are available in January and run daily until they’re all gone.

U-Pick Honeybells daily from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., rain or shine.



*Children must be with a parent at all times. Sorry, NO pets.

We’ll supply the picking baskets and clippers. Bring your camera. Take lots of pictures!

It is recommended that you wear long pants and enclosed shoes, as you will be walking in a real Honeybell grove.


FUN for the whole family! Come on out!



From the ashes, a grove returns to life
