“Tourist Trap, but free & fun for a quick stop”
Reviewed May 10, 2013

Sun Harvest Citrus is definitely a bit of a tourist trap. But it is a fun place to stop & you can sample some really great orange juice. We were able to pick up some cute souvenirs for our nieces & nephew at this place.
It would probably be a great place to take a family, but for a couple on our honeymoon it was a bit disappointing.

“Tourist trap, but orange ice cream is a must!”
Reviewed May 8, 2013

Free samples of grapefruit, oranges, and four kinds of juice. It really hits the spot. They ship boxes of fruit. All kinds of trinkets and goodies. Pretty neat place to visit.

“All things citrusy”
Reviewed May 7, 2013

What a fun place this is. It is a store that sells all things citrus: cookies, candy, juices, even hand lotions. It has some beautiful seaside decor, ornaments, kitchen items, etc. There is a juice tasting area. My favorite was the cranberry orange juice. You can also ship fruit to your friends & family at home. There is also soft serve ice cream & a bakery. I recommend the key lime & chocolate twist soft serve ice cream.

“Not That Great”
Reviewed May 1, 2013

So this sounded and looked really neat based on the two page ad in the tourist magazine we picked up. Seeing a citrus processing plant, free juice samples to try the different juices, able to buy fresh Indian River citrus, etc. Well, it was a big air conditioned building which was nice on a hot day. The citrus processing plant was not a tour but a couple windows where you could view the floor, which at the time must have had everyone on break because there were only loads of citrus piled up in boxes, a big conveyor belt outfit and another room with juice packaging equipment but nothing going on. So, not that informative! The citrus and juice was fresh but that's about it. You could buy the citrus and juice cheaper at a local grocery store (or back home for that matter). The only real redeeming piece of our trip there was the vanilla/orange swirl soft ice cream. That in itself was worth the visit! But that's about it.
